With a national shortage of lorry drivers, there are lots of opportunities for new drivers to gain employment quickly. Whilst some employers prefer to recruit drivers with experience, there are also lots of employers who are happy to take drivers with little or no experience. We have contacts with a number of employers and driving agencies local to Norwich, who are looking for drivers, so we can point you in the right direction in order for you to get work soon after passing your test. A lot of our customers have found work in a matter of days after passing their driving test.
