Lorry Driver recruitment agency listing
The role of Lorry Driver is often relatively well paid and can involve long periods of travel. Some jobs are UK based, while others require you to drive your vehicle across continental Europe and beyond.
Recruiting Lorry Drivers
The recruitment agencies listed on this page have substantial experience in providing staff to fill all types of Lorry Driving vacancies.
To become a Lorry Driver you must be over 18 and hold a valid Category B car driving licence. You then need to add the required entitlements to the licence. You can choose to drive vehicles with a Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM) of either 3.5-7.5 tonnes, or over 7.5 tonnes. Each of these requires a different entitlement to be applied for.
Additionally, you will need to complete a medical report and pass both provisional and practical Lorry Driver tests. You must also pass a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence, and once you've passed you'll get a Driver Qualification Card, which must be kept with you at all times when you find employment driving a lorry.
Career development and pay
While learning to drive a lorry may take a little time, it can open the door to a rewarding career that tends to offer many job opportunities. Pay can vary, from around £10 per hour, right up to £30,000 a year. Earning the upper bracket is usually only possible with extensive experience - although a driving recruitment agency is a great way to find such employment when the time comes.
