Upgrade your driving licence

The UK logistics industry is a fast-moving, exciting place to work. There’s huge demand for high-quality professional drivers, so if you’ve got what it takes, you can build a brilliant career. From skilled multi-drop drivers carrying out final-mile deliveries, to HGV tramping drivers – these are the people that keep the UK moving, and you can be a part of it.

You can upgrade your driving licence with our Licence Acquisition Training service. So whether you’re looking to become a lorry, coach, bus or FLT driver, or would like to upgrade your existing HGV licence to Class 1, ADR or HIAB, we can help. We also provide a great way to spread the cost of your training with finance options and have pricing illustrations available here.

Click the links below to explore your licence options.


Start your professional driving career with the HGV Class 2 licence. Automatically qualifying you to drive any vehicle covered for both LGV C1 and C, it is also the stepping stone to gaining your Class 1 (C+E). More details



Get the most comprehensive licence you can hold, your HGV Class 1. Suitable for anyone who holds or is training for a Category C licence and who wants to increase their earning potential by driving the biggest trucks on the road. More details



Required for all vehicles between 3.5 and 7.5 tonnes, this licence is ideal if you want to upgrade from regular van work but remain in light lorries such as supermarket delivery vans and small rigid lorries. Always in demand. More details

About Nic

Nic has been in recruitment straight from graduating from university. He knew straight away that this was a career move and has not looked back since. He has now been with Driver Hire & dh Recruitment since 2007. He is passionate and a perfectionist when it comes to service and promises delivery. His honesty and integrity have enabled him to build strong rapport with both drivers and clients. In 2013 Nic purchased the Franchise, and is now even more determined and committed to make this an absolute success, for himself, his staff, his drivers and customers. Away from being the tea boy and office dad, Nic is very family orientated and believes in having this ethos with his team in the office.

About Jake

Jake joined our team in May 2022 and was no stranger to recruitment after a successful 6 year stint within the industry and specifically the aviation sector having worked for one of our neighbours (albeit we had never seen him before!...) Following a break from recruitment during COVID and some time spent as a landscape gardener, Jake felt it was the right time and the right opportunity to jump on board with us and his composed and calming manner compliments the team excellently. In his spare time, you will usually find Jake spending time with family & his dogs Candy & Obi, normally on long walks trying to tire them out! He also plays golf regularly & supports Arsenal, for his sins!

About Sarah

Nic hired me to help grow the business and support the team with Admin tasks, which I have experience in from my previous role where I was for 12 years before I joined the lovely team here at Gatwick. I’ll be the first person you’ll hear when you call and I will try and assist you with any queries you may have. I will also be processing timesheets, sending invoices and carrying out other general payroll duties to make sure all of our hard working candidates get paid on time :) In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family; I have two young children which keeps me on my toes. I am a competitive netball player and umpire; we’re a very sporty family and huge Chelsea fans!

Frequently asked questions

What do I need to do to register with you?

You can set up job alerts by creating an account here. Alternatively if you prefer, you can give us a call or just pop in. Quality is at the heart of all we do so we take our candidate registration process very seriously. Before we can offer you work you will need to attend a face-to-face interview.

When you come in to see us, you will need to bring certain key information with you. You must provide your National Insurance number, bank details and another form of ID such as a passport or birth certificate. Where relevant you will need to provide proof of your right to work in the UK. For driving work we need to see your original driver’s licence (both parts if a photo card) and proof of any licence upgrades you hold.

We always take up references on every candidate so please also provide phone numbers of two work related referees.

What type of work can you offer me?

We can offer you a wide range of different jobs. As well as lots of driving work, across all licence categories, we are always recruiting for many non-driving roles. Whether you are looking for part time work, a contract role or a long term career, we can help. Check out our online jobs board, phone or call in to find out more.

How old do I have to be to work as a Driver Hire driver?

We welcome candidates of all ages. Please be aware that insurance requirements for certain roles mean that an age limit may apply to that particular role.

Are all your drivers fully compliant with relevant legislation?

Nothing is more important to Driver Hire than safety and full regulatory compliance. All Driver Hire drivers have to take a 150-point competency test before they are allowed to work for us and we provide ongoing updates on new rules and regulations as they are introduced. We also have bespoke IT systems in place to monitor the work our staff do for us.

You can be confident that any member of staff you take on from Driver Hire has been fully briefed on any relevant legislation.

Can you help me out at short notice?

Absolutely. Some people say it’s what we do best. As the UK’s leading specialist supplier of transport and logistics staff, we have an extensive database of high quality candidates ready to step in and help you out.

You can call us any time of the day or night, 365 days a year and speak to a real person on the other end of the line. We know the pressures you are likely to operate under, so will take down the details of the person you need and if we can’t tell you instantly who we have available, we will get back to you within 15 minutes with a definite answer either way.

Can you help with non-driving roles?

Yes. Driver Hire is about much more than driving. We can help you find the ideal candidate for just about any role connected with the transport and logistics industry. That includes drivers of course, but also warehouse staff, operations and back office roles, plant operatives, managerial staff and much more. Check out ‘Looking for Staff’ for more information.

Do you just provide temps?

No. Our experience in the industry and our extensive candidate database means we are ideally placed to help you find long-term contract staff and of course, permanent employees. Our permanent recruitment service operates on a no success no fee basis and is backed up by generous guarantees.
