For those thinking about doing the Intermediate Licence don't worry it is a bit harder than the Foundation but not too bad.I did physics both a "O" level and "A" level. Intermediate does not need even O level type skills.( GCSE for youngsters)

The Advanced / Full licence is abeat and is stretched and stressed me.The answer is simple, sign up ( when it restarts post Covid) for the Bath Based Distance Learning Course run by Steve Hartley. Currently on hold it is brilliantly organised to slowly spoon feed you with what you need and you get 1:1 support from a tutor. The materials used are well designed. They charge a fee but if you stick the course ( which runs over 6 months) you get your moeny back. The fee is there to discourage times wasters.

PS just got a U1 size leisure battery to allow me to operate off grid. Hopefully it will eventually go in a RigRunner battery box.

My partner is studying the intermediate now, and the new course is slightly harder than the previous one I took, my intermediate was a doddle, just a hard foundation really. This time they have moved some of the advanced down and added some digital stuff but nothing that youtube couldn't fix.

I have heard good things about the bath course as well.
