    Default How easy is it to get in the TA

    Evening was wondering how easy is it to get in the TA and get them to pay for your hgv and that? Is it like trying to get into the normal army or?

    If your motivation is to get your HGV license there's probably safer ways....

    The good news for joining the TA at the moment is that the Govt have just slashed the numbers of regular forces by making a load of people redundant. So in return they're recruiting a lot more TA and other reserve forces to fill the operational gap. So a lot of TA units will be recruiting.

    Your best bet will be to go speak to the careers office.

    First thought, seeing the title, was Remembrance Day had given you a desire to serve in your spare time. I was somewhat disappointed to find it's purely to have them pay for your HGV licence.
    I think you'd struggle. I took me 6 years as a regular before I was even considered for a HGV course, and then only because it was required for my job.

    Well if you want an hgv it's the most sensible place to go . You won't get priority for an hgv in the infantry as its just not used so depends what you really want from it. I think 3 years is the minimum sign up time.
