LGV recruitment agency listing

A large goods vehicle (LGV) driver transports goods around the UK and beyond.

No specific qualifications are required to become an LGV driver. However, most employers prefer to take on candidates who are physically fit and have evidence of basic skills, preferably demonstrated through GCSE passes in English and maths. A LGV licence category C1, C or C+E is essential to work as an LGV driver. Younger entrants to this profession may be able to secure themselves a place on a Young LGV Driver Training Scheme, which enables them to gain an LGV licence and NVQ qualification.

All LGV drivers receive on-the-job training from their employer. Training may cover driving skills, basic vehicle mechanics, health and safety, and loading and securing goods. Drivers may also be offered the opportunity to study for NVQs in Driving Goods Vehicles. Under EU laws, all LGV drivers must hold a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) in addition to their LGV licence. LGV drivers who transport dangerous goods are also required to have an Advisory Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) certificate.

Some LGV drivers are self-employed while others work for road haulage firms, manufacturing companies and major retailers. Employment opportunities for LGV drivers are usually advertised through driver recruitment agencies. Candidates for these jobs need to be physically fit as drivers may be required to load and unload their vehicles themselves.

Starting salaries for newly-qualified LGV drivers are around £14,000 a year. Experienced staff may be able to move into higher paid management roles.
