Predominantly for anyone interested in driving large goods vehicles (LGVs) – lorries weighing over 7.5 tonnes. LGV drivers transport and deliver goods between suppliers and customers, travelling across the roads and motorways of the UK and beyond. LGV driving is a skilled job, and doing it safely takes work and training.

You should be involved in transporting goods with pick-ups and multi-drop deliveries. Other duties may include planning schedules and routes, supervising the loading and unloading of cargo, completing paperwork and log books – and, of course, lots of driving.

LGV drivers need to know the rules of the road and have good time-keeping and planning skills. They can work antisocial hours, often alone, and spend time away from home. But you’ll see the world from behind the wheel.

Job Roles include:

• Motorcycle/cycle Courier
• Van Driver
• Rigid Vehicle Driver (Age restrictions apply to candidates wishing to drive Large Goods Vehicle (LGV’s). Candidates MUST hold a Full Category B (Car) Licence before they commence this pathway, as without it they will not be able to undertake LGV training. The minimum age candidates will need to be in order to drive a Large Goods Vehicle is 18.)
• Articulated/Drawbar Driver (candidates MUST hold a minimum of a Full Category C (Rigid Vehicle Licence) before they commence this pathway, as without it they will not be able to commence the additional LGV training.)
