Your resume and a well written cover letter will provide all the information to a potential employer to decide whether or not to call you for the interview.
Address your letter
First get the name of the employer from the company and address your cover letter directly to the concern person instead of writing 'Dear Sir/Madam' or 'to whom it may concern'. Double check the spelling of the employer's name.
Below is the opening sentence for your driver's cover letter that tells the employer why you are contacting him.
Dear Mr. Justin,
I saw your advertisement in Saturday's newspaper and writing this cover letter to apply for the post of lorry driver.
The letter must include the position name for which you are going to apply and also make exact references to the company. Show you interest in the job position and how your skills are perfect for the specific position. Actually the reader wants to know:

Dear Mr. Justin,
While I was searching for the job of a driver I came across your ad on jobs4good.com site for a city bus driver. I was working in another town for one year. I have correct vehicle driver's license and willing to contribute my experience and driving skills for public safety and fulfilling transportation needs for the visitors and residents of our city.
I am stable and calm and interested in people, and I am having two bus drivers as my friends on the west side. Ann Lorenz and Jerry Jones recommended me to apply for this post. They very well know me as someone reliable and comfortable with people and driving even in the stressful conditions.
If you are interested then I am ready to come to your office any weekday morning between 10:00 and 12:00, because I am working in the afternoons and evenings currently. Please contact me at (123)-456 789 to set up a meeting.
I am really thankful to you for taking the time to review my cover letter and consider it. I look forward to hearing from you.
