    Ive found a job near me, which is just over 5 mies away, we have a good train system and bus system round here so getting to an fro would not be a problem plus i could always bike there. Anyway i was reading the job spec and they state that it is essiential for the candidate to have a license and a car for work purposes etc. Now i understand all this, but i know i wont get past the application form selection which seems somewhat unfair. I have been gaining experience and i feel that im very suitable for the job.

    Ill still apply, but should i state on the form that i would purchase a car as soon as possible, ie when i start getting paid???

    Any ideas ?

    Hey Ed,

    I presume from your last comment that you already have a driving licence? I'd still apply for the job, if you get through to the interview state you don't currently own a car but will be getting one in the near future. You might get offered a company vehicle...

    Could you consider using a credit card to get a car if you got the role?

    I got my first development job without a license, despite it being a requirement. Just fire it in, and let them know you dont.

    If it is utterly essential, then you will probably get canned, but thats their choice. If you don't send it in, then you have no chance at getting the job.

    It's obviously as you would be travlling between sites.

    A woman in work with us had an offer of a job, in a similar situation to you, except she didn't have a license. The offer was conditional on her passing her test and obtaining a vehicle within 2 months of her commencing.
