  5. Hi Folks We are just making initial enquiries at the moment with agents and were about to arrange for a skill assessment for Andy, when I looked into the new pathway D requirements and now I think we need some advice. Andy is a Motor Mechanic of 9 years working experience, he initially did a city and guilds level 1 in motor vechicle repair and servicing then got a job at a nissan dealership and only attended nissan specialised courses, then joined a Toyota Dealership and continued with any courses they presented. however as none of these are formal qualifications we are rather concerned we will just be wasting our money going ahead with an assessment. Initially we thought his work experience would get us through, but with these new rules we are far from confident. Would his only option now be to totally retrain to an NVQ 2/3?? thanks in advance Sara and Andy
  6. hi my husband is very skilled in hgv mechanic but will be 45 in oct. the vetassess practical is after he is 45 are we too late to apply :no: have we missed the boat? is there another way round it or are we doomed?? any information would be gratefully received.xx
