GA Card Monthly-L Permit specific

I didn't see this specific thing addressed elsewhere...

Thought I'd try to get an answer on a new thread. I'm wanting to buy a monthly GA. I'm on an L permit unfortunately that won't expire until March 2013, so I have way more than 4 months left on it. But when I download the application on the website it says that you can only get the monthly subscription GA pass with a B or a C permit, no matter how much time is left on an L. Has anyone had any recent success getting a monthly GA with an L permit? Shall I just go to the station and try my luck?

Thanks for your help!

They claim that their credit agency will not allow them do provide a monthly pass to L-permit holders (I guess L-permit holders are seen as more of a credit risk).

Re: GA Card Monthly-L Permit specific

The way I got my monthly pass is that my boyfriend's mom kindly agreed to "sponsor" me. The bill arrives her in her name, and I refund her the money. I think, emphasis on think, that the way it works is that if you can get someone with a C or B permit, and who is old enough, to agree to cover you, then you can get the pass. You have to agree to have it for a year though. I hope this helps!
