If you're still not feeling fully confident after passing, highlandcow, it might be worth doing pass plus to gain abit more experience.

Good idea! Plus it should help get a lower insurance premium. Everyone's a winner! :D

Quite true. You'll also get night driving and motorway experience.

Some great and inspiring new year's resolutions on here :) I hope that you all manage to keep them ;)

Mine is a bit bizarre but I want to become more flexible. I am really into swimming and can swim reasonably well but at the moment I will never attain the standards that I want to because my shoulders are too inflexible. I can't streamline in the water - i.e. I can't get my arms straight above my head!!

It is embarassing. I can't even sit cross-legged! :oops:

So my resolution is to do 30 mins of stretching before I go to bed each night. I would love to get into yoga but at the moment I am simply not flexible enough even to go to a beginners class!

Nor can I! But I'm sure you'll be able to in time. :D

That's good; I think that could be something really great in your life, Captain.

Thanks so much for the good luck messages :)
If i'm honest yes, i'm extremely nervous now! :) I am looking forward to the opportunity to prove myself though, but i'm still very very nervous!!!!!!!!
After everything last year I decided to just go for it this year and hopefully all will work out :)

Thanks. I believe next week is all group and individual activities. If I get through to that I get asked back for the physical assessment and medical.
I am more nervous today than I was yesterday! #-o :lol:

Thanks highlandcow. I'm getting more nervous as each day goes by, this is not good for me.

Those links are helpful, thanks ever so much for them. Is that police one for the UK or elsewhere? I couldn't quite figure it out but it was valuable.

The assessment next week is all based on group and individual activities. If asked back we then return at a later date for physical testing and a medical.
