Apologies for being the one to start the post on this issue… However, I have an HGV licence from a long time ago in a galaxy far away, but I wouldn’t want to use it. Mainly due to a hatred of driving in general and too much time away from home. Is there actually a driver shortage or actually just cr@p conditions/pay in the industry that are causing the problem? Would a FOI request to DVLA reveal that the UK is actually flush with qualified drivers, but it’s just not attractive enough an undertaking? Thoughts?
