If you got drive and enthusiasm, we’ve got the expertise. So if you’re looking to get your career on the move join our Driver Academy today.
You’ve seen the news—drivers are very much in demand right now. But getting your HGV licence can cost up to five thousand pounds. At Booker Driver Academy, we’ll train you for free. In just twenty weeks you could be a qualified, professional driver starting a great career with us, where you’ll truly be valued.
You’ll have held a full UK driving licence for at least two years, have less than six penalty points and no criminal convictions that prevent you from driving. Plus, you’ll want to be the helpful face of our organisation and give great customer service every time you deliver.
The programme is led by our highly skilled Trainer Drivers and consists of coursebook teaching and on-the-job learning. Working 45-48 hours a week, 5 out of 7 days, you’ll buddy up with our HGV Drivers and spend time out on their delivery runs so you can get a feel for what your day-to-day will actually be like. The training doesn’t stop once you’ve qualified either - we will support with ongoing costs, Medical, Tachograph card, Driver CPC (Driver Certificate of Professional Competence).
