A person licensed to drive vehicles of 7.5 tonnes or over is also known as an LGV (Large Goods Vehicle) driver, or HGV driver. The role involves driving an LGV to and from depots and distribution centres across the UK and possibly on continental Europe, depending on the role.
A number of UK recruitment agencies that specialise in filling LGV driver roles are listed on this page.
Qualifications and entry requirements
Candidates must be 18 or over in order to hold an LGV licence, possess a good driving record, have good eyesight and be fit enough to pass the LGV medical exam.
To be able to drive rigid vehicles over 7.5 tonnes, a Category C version of the LGV test must be passed.
Those who already work for a transport operator may have an LGV driving course funded, while those who do not would have to fund it themselves.
Many people move into LGV driving from forklift truck operation, construction plant operation, warehouse work or bus and coach driving.
Another route is an Apprenticeship with a firm which requires and is willing to train LGV drivers.
Starting salaries begin at around £17,000, while overall average salaries for those professions stand at £25,000. Specialist drivers for chemical and petrol firms can make up to £35,000.
