Good HGV drivers are at a premium right now. As a result, many employers are looking at training new drivers or upskilling existing ones from amongst current team members. So, for example, if you’ve got a super-star multi-drop van driver in your team, then now is the time to give them a chance to shine as an HGV driver.
And when it comes to doing that, Driver Hire Training can help your business through the whole licence acquisition and training process – from medical through to practical test and Driver CPC.
They’ve got training partners covering the length and breadth of the country ready to take your driver through theory tests and all the practical training they need. Helpfully, for individual drivers buying training, there’s the option to spread the cost rather than paying for it in a lump sum.
Driver Hire’s training options don’t stop at licence acquisition. There’s a nationwide network of trainers to help with Driver CPC as well as upskilling to ADR or HIAB.
“There’s never been a better or more important time to train as an HGV driver,” says John Keelan-Edwards, Driver Hire’s Director of Risk Management.
“There are real career opportunities in logistics which, thanks to its heightened profile because of the pandemic, is now rightly regarded as an essential industry. We’re training drivers employed by small start-ups through to companies with a fleet of 100 plus vehicles.”
