Default Arrrrggghhh i just want to work!!!

I am really desperate for my licence now, been doing some shite 24v automotive work to get round it, but its low pay, low respect from fellow employees long hours and basically S H 1 T.

So anyway, i'm in the position where my residency is hopefully due thru soon having completed the TRA section. I'm here on a WHV at the mo just so i could be here sooner. What i'm wondering is if anyone knows how i can speed things up. Can i sit the courses i need before getting my visa then applying to ARTC (am i right in assuming i can not do the ARTC till iget the resident visa). Any loops holes, tricks, insider info, anything at all would be appreciated.

Missed out on a few good jobs i could do with my eyes closed and its getting frustrating now. Oh well i knew the score before i got here

Other than that life is great here in perth
