That’s why Manpower has partnered with the UK’s leading driver training organisation, to launch the Driver Academy. This programme equips students with the necessary training, certification and employment support to help you launch a safe and successful career as an LGV driver.
Future drivers can get access to extensive training that will build the skills needed to become an LGV driver, and achieve the right certifications will accelerate their careers. Students also benefit from a bespoke recruitment and professional development programme tailored to their needs, so that they are fully prepared when entering the jobs market.
The decision to take my HGV test and start working as an HGV driver wasn’t an easy one. This was a complete change of career for me, so it was very comforting to be able to talk to the people at the UK’s leading driver training partner who were able to advise me and set me on the right track in this career change. This is a fantastic service and I’ve been guided through my theory, hazard perception, CPC certification, and of course the HGV driving and test.
What has been especially helpful is the support from Manpower, who were very professional. They even found me temporary work while I was waiting between tests.
I can thoroughly recommend becoming an HGV driver through Driver Academy – you will get the support that you need and be in a safe pair of hands.
