“An invaluable paperback guide for the newly qualified trucker.”
Truck & Driver Magazine, Editor’s Choice of the month, June 2016
My name is Malcolm Green and I am an LGV class 1 driver with 18 years’ experience. During this time, I have often seen newly qualified drivers under pressure, struggling, making mistakes and having accidents. All too often, a new driver is thrown in at the deep end and hits the road in a large truck with little idea of how it will handle when fully loaded, unsure even if the load is safely secured. In addition, the driver often has little relevant information on safe working practices and what the law requires of him/her, sometimes resulting in them unwittingly breaking the law.
I became aware that there was a need to provide the missing link between drivers taking there LGV test and entering employment. For this reason, I wrote this handbook as a means of passing on all the useful knowledge and experience I have acquired over the years.
This ready reference handbook will ensure newly qualified LGV drivers a more confident and safe as well as help protect their hard won licences.
