before coming to canada i started on my NVQs on transport,i was told this would be the same as cpc for drivers.
the main reason was going to tech college once a fortnight ,no loss in wages ,home at nights for course time.
it was to be done in modules.alas i jumped ship and came to ca.the traitor that i was lol. (so my boss said).

Its irrelevant anyway as I changed my UK licence to a New Brunswick one today in Woodstock and they dont send them back to the UK, they keep them on file in Fredericton and simply say that if I want to change it back, give them two weeks notice and I can swap over again. Needless to say, all I will do now is report mine missing to the DVLA when or before I visit home, and have both.
