Introduction for HGV Drivers

For aspiring HGV drivers, a short look into the day to day work you'll be expected to do

There is no doubt that the media frenzy over the past couple of years highlighting the Driver Shortage crisis has made the world of HGV trucking appear exciting with romantic notions of the open road and a carefree lifestyle!

But whilst many consider it a worthwhile career choice, anecdotal evidence points to up to 50% of newly qualified drivers leave the industry shortly after qualifying. And government's efforts to cajole the estimated 75,000 existing vocational licence holders back has done little to stem the ever increasing flow of drivers leaving the sector

Here, in this 21 hour on-line only course we look to help those considering joining us in the sector, how to start, what to spend, options and choices, and what to expect from a career that can certainly be rewarding, and will certainly be challenging.

Warts and all!
