Specialised HGV Training launches new convenient fee structure to counter UK’s 50,000 HGV driver shortage

Springing into action to solve the pressing issue of 50,000 HGV driver shortage that the UK is currently facing, London based HGV training centres Specialised HGV Training has recently launched a special promotion called the “Train Now, Pay Later” scheme. Through this promotion, customers will be able to pay only £10 to begin training immediately and pay nothing for the first 90 days. In these 90 days, Specialised HGV Training will ensure that the customer finishes training and is ready to work.


Specialised HGV Training has been serving the UK HVG driver industry for many years, taking aspiring HVG drivers through their four-step process that equips them with the skills and knowledge that will put them on the road to success as soon as possible.
