Wanted: Young drivers for HGV work


If you’re 18 or over and hold a clean UK driving licence, the haulage industry is crying out for you to take the short training course necessary to obtain your HGV driving licence. 


The traditional image of the HGV lorry driver as a seasoned veteran of the road is no longer relevant. One reason that this image is fixed in some people’s minds is the fact that, until 2009, you had to be at least 21 to get behind the wheel of an HGV. It was only in 2009 that the age limit was lowered to 18. So, even if you’re fairly new to driving, at HGV Express, we can build your skills so that you become fully qualified and fully capable of taking on a wide range of HGV driving roles.


Start gaining experience as soon as possible


Some young drivers may feel they are too inexperienced to drive HGVs. However, even the older members of the workforce were inexperienced once. The solution is to start driving and start building that experience as soon as possible. We don’t expect a young driver to come to us with all the skills and know-how of a practised professional. That is what people come to HGV Express for – to learn these skill from our knowledgeable and friendly instructors.


We see youth as an advantage


A young adult that wants to become part of one of the UK’s vital industries, road haulage, is someone we want to help fulfil their ambition. We can give real purpose to the energy and enthusiasm of youth. If you want to learn, we will give you all the help you need to get your HGV licence. With our expert training, aspiring young men and women can build a long-term career in this highly rewarding industry.


Be part of the next generation of lorry drivers


It doesn’t matter how old you are. As long as you’re an adult with a driving licence and a love of the open road, we want to hear from you. There is a massive shortage of HGV drivers, and young drivers are being made especially welcome by haulage companies across the country.


With training facilities throughout the UK, it’s easy to get your driving career on the road to success. At HGV Express, we’re pleased to take on enthusiastic drivers of all ages – and we’re especially pleased to welcome those at the early stages of their working lives.
