If you’re looking for a career change and like the idea of being on the road, getting your HGV licence is a great idea. Driving large goods vehicles for a living offers freedoms not found in many other jobs. You’ll no longer be tied to a single place of work and will get to travel – whether that be in your local region, around the UK or even internationally.
Starting salaries for HGV drivers can be as high as £28,000 a year, depending on location and the nature of the work. And with training taking no more than a matter of weeks, it’s a fast-track route to a lucrative new career.
