Well if anyone has been reading up on the requirements, they would have noticed that there was a change yesterday.

I emailed the MFS about it last week and they've updated it. Can anyone pick it?

yep, legislation changes in december. I'll be booking myself in this week to get myself up to date.

I think it would have caught a lot of people if they didn't update it!

It was that before. They have just simplified it for people to understand. Used to be either unrestricted Heavy Rigid or Heavy Rigid with condition A or B which is automatic or syncromesh. So the only thing they have taken out is the Automatic.

Last year they did PAT 1 first then aptitude and profiling then interview. Dont know about any of the rest. I only got to the interview.

But when you do PAT 1 you have to have License, 1st aid cert and typing cert with you so they can sight them other wise you wont be able to try out. They are strict with that
