Licence Conditions Quiz

As part of the February 2014 CARS Skills Workshop on the 17th of February 2014, we set a short quiz, featuring 10 UK licence conditions quiz questions – 5 were aimed at Foundation licence holders, and for Full licence holders. The questions stimulated some interesting debate, and a little controversy too!

As requested on the night, we’ve put the questions live on the site, so you can have a go in your own time. If you want us to check the answers, hit “Submit Your Answers” to get the answers sent by email.

Just a bit of fun!

Q2 What do the following prefixes signify: MX0 ; GB3 ; MB7 and 2U1

Q4 You hear GB3VHF on 144.430MHz – Is this a legal transmission & can you reply?
