    Have you done it? I'm going to do it. Go for it. It's your life. You won't know unless you try for yourself. You can find negative Nancy's in any job. My uncle and brother do it and recommend it. Best quote I've found for all in training for cat1 CPC etc is £2700

    Don't be afraid to ask your local Jobcentre for help with the costs.

    I haven't moved forward with anything as yet.

    I've started doing just eat on my bike to bring in more money to save up and just pay somewhere like Ritchies in Glasgow to do it myself.

    Doesn't help my Mrs hates her job and is learning to drive to move jobs whilst also saving for a deposit on a house :o

    My mate may get me in where he works as semi skilled mechanic which could be a wage boost. Do that for a bit before driving maybe.

    I would stick to the office and study. If a lorry driver gets £10 hr, you might as well work in tesco
