Student EC rebate ?

Hi

By the letter of the policy you have to have a license to get the EC rebate so I emailed the CAA asking that whilst I don’t have a license yet I’m known to you as you’ve issued a class two so would you make an exception for students?

Shock horror no reply, so as a punt I applied on the portal for the EC Rebate access, today I was granted access to the claim form to claim the rebate “great stuff I must be able to get it”

Not so sure as the form asked to check eligible before claiming.

I know the answer is technically NO, I’m just curious if any other students have managed to make a claim or anyone else know if a student has been successful.

Didn’t think I’d have gotten this far if I’m honest.

Based on approval I was gonna try and order a sky echo if I could find it in stock but suspect I’ll get rejected on my claim now.

Have my answer, they just emailed me “NO” in fairness I guessed as much as the rules where clear but if you don’t ask you don’t get.

Yeah. Thinking the same but may need some sort of gods grace.

I think you'd have more chance relying on your own resources. :wink:

Joking aside it is an added incentive. Still 5 months to go (CAA funds permitting).

Your not wrong there...

I suspect the funds will run out long before then but that aside I’m not sure I’ll do it in five months as an In expected expense in the form of surgery for the dog that the insurance refused to cover left a £4K hole my savings :( Needless to say my plans to have my Licence by the spring is unlikely

@Fellsteruk, well, as a non pet owner that leaves me kinda speechless. :shock:

Still, there's 5 months to go and if you're going to spend it anyway. :wink:

Fellsteruk.
As a pet owner, and having been there a few times, you have my sympathy.

Personally, I don't think they will.

I do hope your right and that lockdown 2.0 doesn’t drag on long enough that my aim of being a ppl for the spring isn’t shattered :)
