I need to pass my damn theory, but I don't want to work on it because I failed the first time and I really hate reading British technical jargon. It's so boring and foreign I can't remember the info!

Get the theory test app. That's what I did and I made sure I had seen every single question before I took my theory test. It also has sample videos for that part of the test too. It was so much easier on my phone than reading the stupid book and I could practice anytime I had a free 10-15 minutes - on the bus, waiting for a train, at lunch, at the doc's office, etc. Here's the link for the Android one, I'm sure there's an Apple one too.

hey! just wanted to say that for my first FLRM i used the lease renewal that was online only and printed out -- and it was definitely a crap print job. it wasn't a problem though.

hope things are going better for you!

Thanks. I'm just trying not to think about the visa application. I got my biometrics invitation yesterday, which would have been useful to arrive the day before as I was in Derby, the closest place for me to do you biometrics. So frustrating!! 😖

It's nice to hear that my lease should be okay. It was one of the big worries.

Just chiming in a few weeks after the fact to say your lease should be fine. Ours was a massive pain, but our letting agents are pretty helpful- there was no copy of the least signed by all parties (both of us and both the landlords) so I just submitted copies of one set signed by us, one set signed by them. They don the even keep originals, so that wasn't an option!

Wasn't an issue at all for my application so I'm sure yours will be fine!

Well, that's nice to hear! Thanks for chiming in, Sputinka. I haven't seen you around all that much lately.

I did my biometrics 2 weeks ago so it's just a waiting game for me.

I've been ridiculously busy with work, so haven't had a lot of free time for internetting.

But I do remember when I was gathering all my docs in December for my FLR and how I was freaking out and ANY reassurance was helpful so I hope yours arrives soon!

The dreaded work. I totally understand about that one. I hope it's an enjoyable job for you!

And thank you. It does assuage some of the worry.
