Tell Me More

Are you looking for a class 1 driver job? What exactly is it? It is the type of job that you would do if you have an HGV license. After several years of training, you will undergo two types of tests. The first is a knowledge test, while the other is a road test.

Essentially, class 1 driver jobs involve working on any of the following:

  • A 2-axle road tractor with a 4,500kg net weight or more. The tractor can be used to haul at least one trailer or semi-trailer.

  • A 3-axle road tractor with the ability to haul at least one trailer or semi-trailer.

  • A class 3 truck used to haul a trailer or semi-trailer with a net weight of at least 4,500 kg.

  • A class 3 truck used to haul a trailer or semi-trailer different from the ones already discussed. The net weight of the truck shouldn’t be more than 2,000 kg.

HGV 1 jobs may not just be about driving trucks or heavy vehicles. You may also be allowed to drive any vehicle, excluding motorcycles. It is a requirement that you get a class 1 license to be able to qualify for these jobs. Any other driver’s license just wouldn’t work.
