Cars at Raleigh?

#1
leaving in 3 weeks, I know you're not allowed to take a car with you for basic. But i'm staying on at Raleigh for my Submariner training. Will I be allowed to bring my car then? Thankssss

Christ, I think so from what I remember. When I was a part III trainee we were allowed them. It gets covered in seagull shit though, so don't leave it loafing for more than a week.

Parking at Raleigh is an absolute nightmare to be honest. there's the worlds biggest carpark, but they use it for marching unfortunately.

You may be able to park on the old Fisgard site- "over the road" upon commencing submariner training, but it's dependent on spaces being available. Trainee submariners will be advised on availability when they join, however the staff answer, without the benefit of inside knowledge, is currently "no" unfortunately.

When exactly was that, as a matter of interest buddy?

Staff answer, from the Raleigh Guard room no less, is that part III trainees are able to park cars across the road in Spickernell ( the old Fisgard site- well the part that hasn't been sold off to the council ).
Watch out for seagull shit though.

the RN gives you travel warrants to travel home for free on the train and if you have a car they give you money per mile to get home in your car

ZOMG!!! Are you serious?

How often is that?

Do you have so many uses or is it unlimited?
Ah, wonderful. You'll get 4 warrants per year under GYH(Early Doors). I like the idea of a CPOWTR being told that trainees get unlimited warrants...

It seems the answer (via SBD & DwJPA) is indeed correct, providing there are spaces available when you start part 3 SM training. You will need to verify this beforehand, obviously.

As you're aware they are not allowed before then however.

It varies:

Your careers office should be able to give you a more accurate picture of the average timescales involved.

I'll move this to the submariners thread so as you get more accurate advice...
Good question well evaded
