NVQ-Driving Goods Vehicles-motorcycle

Hi

Not posted anything for a good while so thought I would ask if anyone had done the above qualification in the topic title?
I think I might like to do it, but not sure whether its worth it?
If anyone's done or doing it, could you let me know what's involved or what you think of it?

Cheers

It may be worth doing for your own personal benefit but as far as professional advantage goes i don't think there will be any.

There are very few couriers that supply bikes which is where a qualification could be a benefit but these tend to take on anyone who is willing to ride for them.

Thanks Bramble

Thought that might be the case.
Would need to find someone willing to assess me anyway.

Might do a course on flower arranging or wine tasting instead.

Every trade is dead in the water t the moment but have you thought about carpentry or plumbing?

These are trades that everyone will always need and you have a van, good to go.

Or put windows in the van and convert it to a hearse - that's not a dead trade.

Betcha Dennis you've got a spreadsheet somewhere with a bit of double glazing costed into it. :shock:

Not likely! It would remind me too much that it won't be long before I'm riding in the back of one. :wave:
