Changes for lorry and bus drivers

Changes introduced to driving test and licence requirements affecting lorry, bus and coach drivers will come into effect on 10 April 2014. We’re sorry you’ve had to wait for these changes and appreciate your patience. From 10 April, the changes will:
  • Remove the need for 8-forward gear ratios for large test vehicles (category C, C+E) 
  • Let people who take a lorry or bus test (category C, C+E and D, D+E) in an automatic vehicle to get a manual entitlement for those vehicles, if they already have a manual entitlement for cars, lorries or buses, with or without trailers (category B, B+E, C, C+E, C1, C1+E, D, D+E, D1+E)

A class C Driver can earn up to £485 per week and Class C+E driver can earn approx. £600 per week, this should increase with experience.

How will I get my first job without experience?
Many agencies will take you on without experience and there is a shortage of LGV Drivers so you have that as your advantage.

Why would any haulage company employ a new driver?
Many haulage companies will be happy to employ new drivers because they can mould them into the job that is required without the bad habits.

Do you offer a guaranteed pass scheme?
There is no such thing as a guaranteed pass, like in many tests you make a mistake you fail. The “guarantee pass” term is just a marketing ploy to get you to book with companies that offer this.

What is the difference between HGV and LGV?
There is no difference HGV – Heavy Goods Vehicle and LGV – Large Goods Vehicle
