Hi there, I've currently sent off my application form last tuesday and are just waiting back for a test date, would you say id expect a letter nxt week with a test date on or the week after?

also the main question :), if you're a driver and you get accepted, can you have you car at HMS Raleigh when you do your basic training, ie drive straight there to start you training and leave you car there when on a operation.

Do you have a specific garage or is there a massive car park?

cheers

Seriosuly, during the first bits of your training you won't have time to use it anyway, as the only times you will be ashore you will be too drunk to drive... :lol:

right no worries ive got that

i was a bit unsure at to whether you could have anyway, especially during phase 1 training, seems i cant then:p

ill have to get the train to hms raleigh when i get accecpted to go there!

leave you in the sugar a bit dosent, it aswell as losing all your 'civvy' streaks you look your travel independence awell when training, oh well that wont bother me i'll knucle down. :)

does anybody know the date to which i should get my test dates?

im sure nobody knows excactly but a rough guess would help, sent back to them this tuesday just gone, so can i expect a letter with my aptitude test dates on say next week or will it be week after?

cheers

I wouldn't bank on even getting test dates within a couple of weeks - forces careers offices are infamously slow.

You will be provided with a rail warrant to get to Raleigh so travelling there will cost you nothing.

Don't worry about test dates. Use the time to revise basic English and Maths skills :smile:

I don't know about Raleigh, but it was very useful at Dartmouth as a place to store extra or dirty kit...!

I had my car at Raleigh, due to the fact the whole country was flooded out when I came back from compasionate weekend leave and the trains were knackered. Great place to hide dirty kit, mobile phone, listen to the match on the radio, etc

lol Total opposite to me!

I nail the English and Maths practice tests but perform crap on the Mechanical Comprehension :sad:

Oh well, might have to go in as something else other than an Engineer :sad:

Good luck by the way Ben!

I'm putting my application in next week so we'll be able to update each other on our progress as we're going to be at the same stages around the same times, should we get to each stage of course! :razz:

You are going in as engineer's?????????
Greenie's or Reddie,s you had better be prepared. In my day we had NAMET, basic maths & ENGLISH, If you could'nt pass that above that 5/4 you became something else. STOP TEXTING> LEARN HOW TO SPELL
Sorry lads Its the Truth

Huh?

Are you talking to me?

I only ask because you've pointed out I type in text-speak when in actuality I'm greatly revered on these boards for being the most consistent speller and grammatically correct!

Sorry if you meant somebody else! - It just looks like you were referring to me! :???:

If you were, yes I definitely want to go in as an Engineer. A Weapons Engineer Submariner to be precise! :wink:
