What can I earn as a HGV Driver?
An average entry-level wage for a Cat C driver in the United Kingdom is around £25k per year, with wages generally increasing as your experience grows. Once you’re qualified as a Cat C+E driver, wages increase, and the earning potential is closer to £29k per year, or £600 a week.
How does the HGV Theory Test work?
The HGV Theory Test is broken down into two parts;
  1. Hazard Perception Test (identifying developing hazards in video clips)
  2. Multiple Choice Test (multiple choice questions).
Both parts of the test are computer-based, and you will be given Industry Standard online revision material which mirrors what you’ll use at the Theory Test Centre.
What is the Driver CPC?
In a nutshell, the Driver CPC is legislation which was passed to make sure that all HGV Drivers have the same skill level, and that they keep their knowledge updated throughout their careers. It affects people in different ways depending on when they passed their car test, and it can be quite complicated to understand, but that’s where we come in – your HGV Training Cost Advisor will explain how the Driver CPC affects you, call today on 0808 1781 600.
