Hgv Driver

An HGV, or Heavy Goods Vehicle, driver is a specially-trained and licensed driver employed to transport cargo to and from a specified destination, sometimes with multiple drops.

HGV is a European Union term for any lorry with a gross combination weight of over 3,500 kilograms.

Who can I work for?

You can work for any company that has a distribution or logistics department. There are large multinational distribution firms and local delivery companies that are always on the look out for reliable and experienced HGV drivers. Many licensed HGV drivers choose to work for themselves.

Where and when can I work?

Anywhere in the UK or Europe. HGV drivers are required seven days a week and 365 days a year. There are roles that require normal office hours, between 8am to 6pm, and those that have shift patterns instead.

What can I earn?

A new HGV Driver should expect to earn around £18,000 - £21,500 a year. An experienced, professional HGV driver can earn in excess of £28,000 per year. Working shifts, or nights, will mean an increased wage.

Due to the demand for HGV drivers, many qualified drivers elect to work for agencies. This is also a good way for newly-qualified drivers to gain experience, with this type of employment attracting pay between £6.50 to £15.00 or more per hour.

What are the benefits?

As an HGV driver you will be out and about, rather than based in an office - it isn't a nine-to-five job. HGV drivers usually work in shifts so a few days on and a few days off, or nights.

This is backed-up by excellent earning potential and good career prospects.

Are there chances of promotion?

There are a number of career progression routes for HGV drivers. Senior roles include transport managers and directors.

What will I be responsible for?

The typical responsibilities of a HGV driver include loading and safe securing of cargo on to the lorry, route planning, driving the payload to required destination(s) and delivering the vehicle back to the depot.

Do I need any experience?

Experience is vital, but not nearly as vital as certification. Without the right training and licences you are not legally allowed to drive. Just like getting a driving licence, hours of practical lessons are required in order to attain the skills to pass the HGV test.

What attributes are needed?

HGV drivers need to be trustworthy, attentive and safe drivers. A flexible attitude towards working hours is usually looked upon favourably and an excellent knowledge of the road network is also a benefit.
