Basic +

Well I had a surprise today,

The station driving instructor took me out during my tour of duty last night and at the end of the assessment and checks also with the stations inspectors approval I have been signed off and granted the driving status of Basic Plus ..
This was more than I expected to be quite honest.
What it means is that not only can I now drive the panda;
I can also drive an IRV (Incidence response Vehicle) in a non response mode!

At least now I will not get funny looks in the tiny small panda when I get out of it, as they are quite tiny and small for my frame!

yay !

I was talking to a friend who has recently been promoted to Chief Insp and second in command of his BCU. He tells me that his lot I won't say which BCU it is but its one that joins on to the Met!! has 80% probationers, 40% non drivers and only 10% of drivers able to use "twos and blues" It apparantly stems from the fact that as soon as the probies get their two years in and are confirmed they head for the Met - much more money, much less hassle !
