Hello there, I've applied for the raf and I am hopefully going into cyberspace Communications specialist role. I was wondering if I would be able to take my standard driving licence through the raf or would I have to go private as usual. Just curious but Thank you for your help

If it's anything like the army then it will depend on whether your job requires it or not. If you will be required to drive vehicles then yes you will get it but I have not seen anything on the RAF website for the above mentioned job that hints at getting a licence.

Unless you are getting a job as an MT driver, you'll be expected to get your licence privately.

The RAF will put you through an intensive 5 day course about 2 weeks into your phase 2 training (depending on the waiting list) and your test will be on the 5th day - unless they feel you are ready to do it sooner in the week. This was the process for my sisters boyfriend and he is cyberspace.

Joining the RAF as what?

You fly, not drive, an aircraft and it's easy or hard depending on your capabilities. You would go through the same route as a civilian by having flying lessons to obtain a Private Pilot Licence. I don't know about cost, but there are education allowances that can be used, though lessons will be cheaper than civilian flying schools.

Have you discussed this with your AFCO to get the most current information?

Hi

If the role you've applied for requires you to be able to drive then you'll be put through your test. If it doesn't, you'll need to take lessons and do it yourself.

Kind regards

Hi

If you're applying to be a pilot, we'll teach you to fly, although it doesn't give you a private pilots license.

If you want to do it privately you'll need to look up places that will teach you.

Kind regards
