Apparently BA can send the CAA a 'request to expedite' email, has anyone tried this?

Is it absolutely required to have the CAA licence on day 1? Or is it possible to continue with training up to maybe the final sim (LST) check?

Any help appreciated. Feel free to PM.
The expedite request worked well for me, although this was a few years ago. Iím pretty sure as you said you would just need the licence in hand by the LST.
