    Quick question about Police Recruitment

    Hi, do you need to be able to drive to join the police force?
    I am currently taking lessons but it dosen't specify if you need a license.

    Cheers in advance and rep will be added.

    I don't have a driving licence. Can I still apply to become a police officer?

    Yes. You don't need to have a full driving licence to apply but you will need to learn to drive and pass you test in your own time and at your own expense within the first year of appointment.

    says nothing about needing to be able to drive. think it depends on location

    Whatever the outcome... good luck with it Ross

    you dont need a license to apply for the met- you will need one if you are in the job and want to drive

    cheers guys many thanks

    down here, not to start off with, but you will have to learn in your own time, not much use in our area without one!!

    I knew LOADS of coppers who couldn't drive - that's very strange - then maybe it's different in the MET as you are more likely to be a beat bobby!

    You have to be fit though

    Are you fit?

    If so Pic proof please! (Someone's bad habits are rubbing off on me) :oops:
