The revised National Heavy Vehicle Driver Competency Framework

After three years in development, the new National Heavy Vehicle Driver Competency Framework is being considered by State and Territory jurisdictions.

The new heavy vehicle driver training framework will impact medium rigid licence holders, such as drivers of two-axle articulated cranes, through to multi-combination low loaders that deliver heavy equipment to construction sites. Similarly, heavy rigid concrete agitators and flattop semi-trailers and B-Double that deliver containers to sites will be impacted by the proposed new training regimes.

The Decision Regulatory Impact Statement that examines the elements of the new framework can be found on the Austroads link below.
