Trucks & Heavy Vehicles

Trucks & Heavy Vehicles

The requirements to hold a truck or heavy vehicle licence are different and so are the legal obligations. With respect to drink driving offences, the threshold Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level for operators of trucks and heavy vehicles is lower than other vehicles.

A heavy vehicle is defined as having a gross vehicle mass or aggregate trailer mass (or combined) of more than 4.5 tonnes. Rules and regulations governing trucks and heavy vehicle offences is continuously being reviewed, and so it is important to be aware of any changes.

Holding the appropriate truck or heavy vehicle licence is one aspect – but it is important to be aware of your obligations, and pay particular consideration to aspects including overloading, speed limiters, dimension limits, and load restraints – otherwise you may be charged with an offence.
