Are you considering becoming an HGV driver? Just not sure whether it’s the right career for you? With HGV Express you can be trained in just a week. Let us inform you of why it’s such a great career with these 10 benefits of HGV driving:

1)You will always be in work

One of the best things about becoming an HGV driver is that you will never be short of work. The haulage industry is under a lot of pressure to hire new drivers every day due to new business and retailers opening up all the time, so now is the perfect time to start training!

2)No long months of training

That’s right, with HGV Express you can be trained in just a week. HGV Express are an HGV and LGV training company who want to help you take the next step towards your new HGV driving career. They offer advice on how to begin training and can advise you on exactly what licenses you need.

3)Assured job security

As the haulage industry relies on moving vehicles, HGV driving jobs are always going to be in demand, no matter how advanced technology gets. Good and qualified drivers will always be needed, so as long as you stay in the industry, your job security will always be assured.

4)High Earning Potential

Because HGV driving is such a high demand, it’s also a great way to increase your earning potential. A full time, fully qualified HGV driver can earn upwards of £30,000 a year. This is all depending on whether you’re an independent driver, or if you’re employed with a company. Many companies also give bonuses for good safety ratings, length of service, and different licences.

5)Freedom of workspace

If you’re someone who loves their freedom, then HGV driving sounds like the perfect job for you. When you’re in your cab, you’re in control.

6)Travel opportunities

As an HGV driver, you get to travel as well as earning money. Your HGV can take you anywhere, and you get to see it all.

7)Job satisfaction

Without HGV deliveries, the world would come to a halt. HGV drivers feel a sense of pride knowing that they’ve made a real difference to people’s lives.

8)Anyone can start a career in HGV driving

You don’t need a university degree to become an HGV driver. All you need is a regular driving license! If you’ve got that, then you can start on some instructional courses, do some practical driving time, and then a final driving test.

9)Career progression

With the right training and support, you can learn new skills to expand your career portfolio which will keep you moving up the ladder while continuously boosting your pay packet. If you work hard and make the most of given opportunities, you can find your way into transport manager positions.
