It used to be that lorry driving was a matter of purchasing a rig, getting some work, and earning a living as a self-employed owner-operator. Things are not that way anymore. For the better part of 20 years, owner-operators have been losing ground to company drivers. That is not necessarily a good or bad thing, but it is reality.

 

A quick perusal of the internet reveals there are some stalwart owner-operators still out, there running a couple of rigs out of rented space at a local yard. However, they are a dying breed. So why are more HGV drivers becoming company drivers rather than owner-operators? There are several factors in play:

The transition from owner-operators to company drivers has not been a pleasant one to watch for veteran drivers who have been in the business for decades. Nonetheless, it is the natural evolution of the industry. To that end, the HGV Training Centre provides the training necessary to get new drivers into the industry.

We offer HGV training for both individual and company drivers throughout the UK.

Furthermore, students who apply themselves and learn quickly can be trained in a matter of weeks.
