HGV Jobs

By Mark Roberts

There are numerous HGV driving jobs available within the UK. One of the easiest ways to find one of these jobs is to first get an HGV license and then search for these positions online. Some people who drive HGV vehicles drive within the UK while others drive internationally.

A large portion of the listings call for Class I (Category C+E) drivers and Class II (Category C) drivers. Other jobs include night time drivers, store delivery persons, and even daytime trucking positions. Some drivers may be gone overnight as well.

A separate license is required in order to drive either type of HGV transport. The category C license permits drivers to legally drive the Rigid truck. The category C+E license permits drivers to legally drive the Artic truck. There is a waiting period required in between applying for both types of licenses. Usually drivers who secure both the C and E licenses will have even more probabilities open to them than drivers who just carry the C license.

The eventual driver needs to have a fundamental knowledge of Mathematics and English along with training and experience in professional driving. He or she will be proficient in many traffic rules across countries and counties, vital navigational skills on the road and an extensive background in auto mechanics.

The HGV driver is required to complete paperwork and record sheets proficiently. The HGV driver is also required to pass a medical test and be in decent physical state. Furthermore, because the driver will have to make contact with customers he or she is required to have a certain level of people skills.

Benefits of being an HGV driver could be the flexible working hours. Not in all HGV jobs, however in vast cases the HGV driver could undertake jobs which suit their lifestyle, for example those with a young family - a rarity this day and age. Another benefit is the income you will receive. Around 600 per week. Blend this with the flexibility of work, job security and pension schemes, becoming a HGV driver could be a thrilling career move.
