There is currently a shortfall of 50,000 or more HGV drivers in the UK. Industry has been instructed by the government to recruit local rather than international drivers to fill these gaps.
For many people this type of work is an attractive proposition, particularly for those who may have been on furlough, out of work or are seeking a career change.
HGV medical essential to obtain driver’s licence
Part of the application process for a provisional HGV licence is proving that the applicant is medically fit to drive this class of vehicle.
In many cases, this medical is undertaken by an applicant’s GP and on some occasions, their optician. However as the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact general practice, there is a lack of face-to-face appointments which is hindering this part of the application process for many people.
