Due to its geographic position between London and the major port of Dover, Kent has a strong transport economy. It is also known for the production of hops (for ale!) and fruits and vegetables, all of which require transportation by HGV. Kent (commonly referred to as The Garden of England) has an excellent road network with the M2 and M20 crossing from east to west and linking up with the M25 near London. Combined with its relatively flat terrain, it makes it a pleasant place to drive an HGV. An ideal place for a new HGV driver to home their skills!
