If you’re looking for a career change and like the idea of being on the road, learning to drive an HGV 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 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.
At Training Mentor we provide all the tools you will need along the way, starting with this helpful step-by-step guide. When you’re looking for somewhere to learn, our Directory of HGV Training Companies will help you find trusted, local training providers. Then, once you’ve got your HGV licence, check out our Employers Directory to find your new job. If at any time along the way you have a question, you can post it in our Community Forum and one of our experts will help you out. Best of all, we provide all these services to you free of charge!
