What is the average wage of a UK HGV driver?

As of the most recent data, the average wage for a Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) driver in the UK varies, typically ranging between £28,000 and £35,000 per year. However, this can fluctuate based on factors such as experience, location, and the specific company. Because of the HGV driver shortage, some salaries now exceed £40,000.
Some experienced drivers, especially those who take on more challenging routes or manage hazardous materials, can earn significantly more. The demand for HGV drivers has also been known to impact wages, with shortages often leading to temporary increases in pay rates.
