    Just spoke to BDS. Said along time ago I'd never give them anymore of my money and the conversation reafirms that.
    1x shooting test 1x safety test and sit at a desk and answer multiple choice questions ..........£160. I did this with them 15 years ago and passed 1st time then. Not again

    £160 seems about the going rate. It's what I paid recently anyways.

    think that seems to be the going rate just now teyhan. my friend booked a level one course along with training day and its £260 all in - £100 for training day and £160 for test the following week.

    Your choice mate, but you'll pay similar for it wherever you go. Just thought it might be fairly local and soon. Once you have to travel and pay accommodation you may find that £160 is actually quite cheap!!

    Don't get me wrong, it was local enough and I'd have swallowed my pride but they said they needed 3 weeks to process the paperwork and wouldn't even entertain the idea

    Three weeks to mark and verify the papers is reasonably quick - and as per previous, £160 the going rate for assessment only - you need to take into account the registration fee is a significant part of that figure.
    Worth a ring round the usual suspects in the area to see when their next course/assessment is.

    The BDS level 1 is £175 that's for the
    DD cd sent out to you to study at home
    then you do the two days for shooting
    And safety then the assessment on the
    last day. Doing it in July
