  1. To even look at without
  2. If I've read correctly you've answered your own question, there should be explanatory notes provided and you will be committing an offence if you drive the vehicle on the road, whilst the prohibition notice is still in place. Now depending on the restrictions you may be able to drive it to a pre arranged not appointment but I'm not 100% sure on that as I don't know what you've been given. Although the explanatory notes should help you
  3. I'm not sure if this is a statement or a question? Welcome to the forum
  4. From what I am aware with the direct entry scheme it is very strict. Each candidate must pass College of Policing assessments prior to be attested, once attested and on the final course they must do a period at each rank PC/SGT/INSP and with each one they will have a tutor/assessor and if they do not pass they will either A be given a learning plan (if it is a case of not having had the opportunity to show requisite skills in the assessment period) or have their employment terminated. Meaning that they will not go down to PC and take that role, if they don't get through, they're gone. It does appear to be strict on applicant numbers and suitability with the candidates all doing NPPF training. Although that being said, hands on experience and prior knowledge account for a lot. Now throwing a twist into the picture, what if a special constable (don't slate me just yet) with many years experience, independent in post and a regular attendee, goes for the position of direct entry. They will have prior knowledge (albeit not knowledge of everything) and some hands on experience...

  6. And the red button nearby
  7. I, rightly or wrongly, tend to try and shut things away, I have one or two close work friends who I can talk to it about, that aren't councillors or anyone from that side of things. But people who I can sit and have a drink and chat about it. No names no specific detail. just an ear and it helps Edit: just to add I tip my hat to anyone that is an FLO. Not a job for me, not at this point in time anyway
  8. Fortunately the officer has not sustained major injuries and is currently recovering. It is dangerous out there and it disgusts me that people will do this sort of thing

  10. Oh and don't forget a torch, unless your force supply you with a decent one it might be worth and investment. We get issued with maglights which no one uses apart from propping doors, but it's under review...

  12. A days motorway course ranging from sitting in traffic, to visiting the services. But realistically people need to be shown how the motorway works. And that a red x on a gantry means don't pass in that lane Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I know the drivers will be heading out with qualified instructors but what about having the instructors doing another test to say they are 'safe and legal' to teach someone how to drive on motorways. Like a pas plus qualification or similar? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
