Too many speeding tickets?

But seriously - maybe it's a glitch or are you the proper level to get it for free?
(I wouldn't think you could buy it if you're under level though.)

Some time back the trainers started charging for speeder piloting again. I believe it was when they added speeder piloting IV and V as legacy perks, but I'm not sure on the exact timing. I just know I hadn't leveled characters for a while and suddenly found myself needing to pay for speeder piloting again when I did level some new characters.

I recently took a new Guardian alt to level 70 (started at level 1) and I don't recall having to pay for speeder piloting, except for level 4 & 5. But, I may have simply not noticed.

I just looked at this. Other abilities are still free, but Speeder Piloting, for whatever reason, is no longer free to train (after Piloting 1).

But it's considerably less costly than originally. Piloting 1 is free, and Piloting 2 is 1k credits.. The 20k credits for Piloting 3 that the OP mentions is what it originally cost to train Piloting 1.

No idea when or why this changed. I don't recall seeing it in the patch notes, or any official announcement of it here on the forums.

I believe that when the game opened, Piloting 1 was 40K. It got reduced when F2P was introduced: 35K for nonsubs, 300 credits for subs.

I just went to 70, made about 2 million and the only skill I had to pay for was speeder. I see no problem.
