LGV drivers (also known as large goods vehicles) collect, transport and deliver tonnes of goods a year throughout the UK and beyond. The LGV category operates trucks or lorries over 3,500kg, which includes rigid trucks, articulated lorries and trucks pulling trailers.

What are the key duties of an LGV driver?

  • Ensuring goods are safely secured

  • Keeping your vehicle in good condition

  • Loading and unloading the vehicle

  • Taking the quickest route to your destination

Do I qualify for an LGV driver role?

The candidate would need to enjoy driving and have excellent driving skills, be able to concentrate for long periods of time and to be able to complete record sheets and paperwork accurately.

To be an LGV driver you must be over 18 and have a full car driving license. It is possible to move into the job from other work, such as warehouse and distribution or other road haulage jobs. Companies may train their own drivers, or potential new drivers could train and take an LGV licence privately at a driving school.
