Qualifications and skills required for HGV drivers 

As one of the top recruitment agencies in North Wales, we understand the need to find HGV drivers for businesses with the necessary qualifications and skills. But what are the qualifications HGV drivers will need? 

Of course, you will first need a valid UK driving license and then you will need to acquire an HGV Class 1, and most likely a Class 2 license. These can be obtained by completing the Class 1 and Class 2 training courses, where you will receive the license to drive vehicles with a trailer over 750 kg, as well as vehicles over 7.5 tonnes.  

Courses including the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) can also be taken which involves a driving theory test, online case studies, a practical test to assess driving ability and a practical demonstration test.  

If you are fresh to the world of HGV driving and require the necessary qualifications, we can help point you in the right direction. Get in touch with us for more information on what it takes to become a qualified HGV driver.
