    Default HGV drivers

    Hi All,
    The requirements for HGV drivers to work to residence state that they must be employed by an accredited company and must earn a base salary of $55000 for a basic 40 hour week, is this correct? it seems to me that it is an impossibility for a driver to earn this amount for a 40 hour week, if you know any companies that pay this wage please let me know.
    thanks

    Yes, unfortunately, sounds like you would need a salary of $55k+ as shown on here. It is very restricting .

    Hi
    I'm also in the same position as my husband is looking for a HGV1 job in driving - he has no points on his licence and is also authorised to carry dangerous chemicals - if you have any luck in finding agencies who can help, please let me know and i will you.

    Good luck

    Yeh, its a shame, you would think that the NZ government would welcome some highly experienced british drivers on their roads, it might even help to reduce the carnage that the kiwis leave in their wake
