A variety of instructional courses prepare candidates for a career as a driver for an employer or as a self-employed operator. The Truck Driving Training company is offering Guaranteed Driving Jobs ((subject to interview) for candidates on their Cat C1 / 7.5 Ton Driver Training Course


Manchester, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/05/2014 -- TRUK Driver Training UK and its team of instructors are pleased to announce that booking a Category C1/7.5 ton driver training course with the company, assures graduates of the opportunity for a career change. The UK is currently experiencing a shortage of qualified drivers, so this is a great time to assess whether the current career path is meeting expectations, or whether it is time to reinvent oneself.

According to a spokesperson for the company, “British logistics is now recovering and showing healthy growth after the recession. With the economy just beginning to recover, finding a job can be a hard task. However, one industry, which really is booming, is the trucking industry. Drivers who hold a Category C1 licence are particularly in demand. The freedom of the open road and a good starting salary upwards of £18,000 make this an attractive career for many.”

He continues, “In order to be a Category C1 (7.5 ton) truck driver, you must hold a Category C1 licence. If you passed your driving test before January 1,1997 your current licence will allow you to drive vehicles of up to 7.5 tons without the need to take any more tests. However, if you passed your driving test on or after January 1st 1997, then you must take a category C1 test to drive any vehicles over 3.5 tons in weight (up to a maximum of 7.5 tons). TRUK offers C1 licence training, with our Fast Track courses usually taking 5 days of driver training to complete.”

Cat C1 7.5 ton truck drivers are well compensated for their time and effort. Salaries range from £18,000 to £25,000 when working for an employer. Experienced drivers may choose to become self-employed with earnings reaching totals above £30,000 per year if working full time. Benefits are provided by some employers, such as mileage or shift allowances.
