Good on you mate, takes balls to sign up, especially the way Brown is treating our boys over there. I thought they would teach you in a Landrover lol.

hello mate, good on you :thumb: as dan said im in at the moment as an aircraft technition so if you have any questions give me a PM :nod:

you will get your licences through the army and may be able to get your HGV licence too depending what vehicles you are required to drive in your unit. and its not in landrovers astranut ;), the army has a contract with BSM to teach all the guys :nod:

you'll be able to keep your car on camp but only in a carpark, no garages unfortunatly. if you make friends with the VM's (vehicle mechanics) they are normaly quite good and let you use their ramps :D

and on your last question, the army gets payed monthly and everything like bills and accomodation etc... comes out before you get it so the money you get is yours to spend on whatever (normaly booze ;))

good luck mate and let us know how you get on :beer:
