This second Bulletin to the Driver Require Think Tank report “THE ANSWER TO THE UK'S HGV DRIVER SHORTAGE” provides further insight into the UK’s HGV driver shortage following the release of the Q4 2021 data by the Office for National Statistics (“ONS”).

This bulletin analyses the results of the Quarterly Labour Force Survey (“QLFS”) for the period October to December (“Q4”) and the latest HGV driving test statistics to discover some very worrying underlying trends within the UK’s HGV driver pool. 

Driver Require CEO Kieran Smith and author of The Bulletin says:

While the size of the overall HGV driver pool has not changed in Q4, this Bulletin specifically identifies severe churn in the under 30 age group, this being the group that we need to attract, retain and develop for the future success of the haulage sector.

We believe that by producing this Bulletin we have provided further compelling evidence that will help focus action by the government and the haulage sector to address the underlying causes of the UK’s HGV driver shortage.
