Driving jobs?

Left school and college now and have a job but it's not something i want to make into a career (only as a last resort)....

If i leave this job i want it to be for something i really want to do which narrows it down to Football, Fitness and Driving.

So What decent driving jobs are about that I could go into within a few years?...understand there would be requirements regarding years of driving etc but can't do me any harm to think ahead ....suggestions for types of jobs within Football and Fitness are also welcome

LGV or PCV - Lorry or Coach/Bus. I was a coach driver. Good job but long hours which is ok if you are single or been married 20 years lol.

Such as? You did ask for sugestions!!
Coach driver generally fits that bill providing you are not just doing commuter runs. Only other thing is chauffeur.

whitey0044 is an unknown quantity at this point
Is there any social friendly driving jobs?? I don't drive for a living but spend alot of time in a van round London and I couldn't think of anything worse to do. Unless your delivering Ferraris all day I can't see the excitement in it.

Driving covers a whole raft of jobs.

There are jobs where you use a vehicle to get to where you are working, such as repair engineers.

Delivery drivers in vans for parcels or food etc.

Then there are people deliveries such as chauffer, private hire, taxi or bus and coach.

Finally you have lorries which can cover day work or what Stobarts have christened tramping where you live in your lorry, large companies aim to get you home once a week, owner drivers can be away for several weeks.

For LGV and PSV you have to take additional driving tests (over 3.5t or 8 seats) and you may need additional tests such as crane licence, ADR....

What do you mean by "social friendly"? Meeting people or home every night to go to the pub?
