    • Ideally you should have a hgv license. I’ve sometimes heard that you can actually work without it, but I doubt it.

      • As a matter of fact, you can do the job with just an ordinary license, being over 18 and getting a job as a trainee with a transports company. Otherwise you do need a lgv course as well as a driver cpc.

  • Are wages lower that they were a few years ago? Last updated by Nathan: 03-Jan-2018

    I’m really interested in going into car transporting as driver. I’ve been researching wages and I get the impression that the pay is lower now than it used to be a few years back, when I looked at the option for the first time. Can it be the case? It seems odd to me, or maybe I’m confused as to what the pay used to be before. I’m talking about some 4-5 years ago.

    • Yes, I’ve also heard talk about wages having dropped a bit over the last few years. Though when looking for offers, I ‘ve come across wages as low as 22k and as high as 42k, so I take it that it’ll depend on many things, among others, the type of profile they’re looking for, as well as location and working conditions.
