I have not seen this topic posted anywhere so i think am the first.

I understand that you do not get put through your driving licence in the RN, do they offer any schemes such as in your spare time you can learn to drive and take the test ect.
Or do you have to book your own lessons when you get your time off?

and is there a lot of people in the RN actually driving.

It may come across as a dim question, but i have only just turned 17, and am just on applying for my provisional, and dont have the money and time at the moment

This has been posted before. Basically you do it in your own time and pay yourself. The only way pusser will do it is if it is branch related, AH being one branch as far as I'm aware.

I got my licence a very long time ago, two weeks at RAF ST Athan, took and passed my test at the end of week one, week two was motorway driving, night time driving, skid pan training and a wee go at driving at night with IR goggles, all for a draft to Faslane.....dm

I know in the Marines, you fund yourself for your licence , then you can claim it back, that is how i got mine.
That's how a ship mate of mine got his

He was required to drive for his next draft, so he took driving lessons, passed his test and the mob repaid him.

You can use your learning credits towards the cost of driving lessons.

You will get told this at Raliegh when you recive your learning credit paperwork.
