It's not just about getting the permit. You'll get discount on some insurance which may well come in handy if you decide to upgrade
the sailing centre at west kirby offer the course and is council run, you can get discount if you have the wirral passprt, even those who live outside wirral can get a cat c one which gives 10% off, when i did mine 2 years ago it was £160 full price, we did the sat all day and the sunday was little over half day
the discount you get is 50% if you are in a recognised club, nothing to do with pbl2, and its a requirement - no pbl2 no permit, and if the lifegurads are at the 3 slipways that you can use arround the wirral... no access to the slipway and they are strict!
