How can I train or recruit HGV Drivers?

The HGV Skills for Life Bootcamp funding scheme by the government is aimed to help the country’s driver shortage. Car drivers can now achieve their HGV Licence with funding!

This training includes the entire licence acquisition – from the provisional, medical assessment, all the way through the practical training, test and Mod 4. We facilitate all of this as an approved training provider. During this time, we have successfully delivered this Skills for Life Bootcamp contract with the government since September 2022.


Recruit HGV Drivers

We have a bank of candidates progressing through their training who are looking for new job as a Driver. We can share CVs of candidates to who are local to YOU.

SP Training supports employers who are looking to train/recruit staff in the following areas of England:

  • Cumbria
  • Thurrock, Essex
  • Biggleswade
  • Castlewood

Your existing staff (or potential new recruits) would need to be able to get to these training centres for the 10 days of training.


Train HGV Drivers

If you have a current employee that you are wanting to upskill to become a driver this can be done at 70% funded! The Bootcamp can also fund (for existing staff) 70% of our ADR Dangerous Goods Course(this must include Tanks).


This is a one time initiative that the government are supporting.

Make sure you contact us soon to take advantage of this funding!


What’s the catch?

There really is no catch! This is a government initiative to alleviate the shortage of drivers, investing in the future of transport.

We have helped 100s of businesses across England train their current and new staff to gain their HGV Licence for free. For employers, all you need to do is interview the candidate(s) and send us evidence of this in an email. If you decide to employ a Driver you will then need to send us the evidence of the job offer. Simple as that!

If you do not wish to hire the candidate or they are unsuccessful with their training, there are no strings attached. We will continue to support their training with us and aim to secure them a future interview with other employers. You can then go on to consider other candidates!
