should get your provisional licence, no probs, where are you planning to settle?
Think you can only start the course once here, it's not easy to get on, lots of phone calls etc.

Thanks for the link. I do have my corgi and have just done a course in LPG. We only have a short term rental when we arrive so moving to a different area would not be a problem. We are willing to move where the work is. I also dont mind traveling. Just cant wait to get there.
