Thanks for the advice. Looked at it and it is definately written as a learners permit. Will wait to see the roper one when it comes through.
Did go into the police station though and check it out as thought they were bound to know. Explained everything to them and he said if that is what they issued, that that is fine and if I got stopped for any reason, it says that I have a learners so not to worry?!
Still not convinced but does not seem to think I have to sit it. May be because I have my UK provisonal and am over 21?!
