Tell us about driver competency and holding a licence

Read time: 1 min

We all have stories about people who drive like they obtained their licence from inside a packet of breakfast cereal. Sadly, some of them drive heavy vehicles.

Here’s your chance to do something to change the situation.

NatRoad is making a submission to an Austroads consultation about driver competency and licensing standards and needs to hear from Members who have seen the problem.

If you’ve experienced a driver who holds a heavy vehicle licence but whose competence to drive a truck is nowhere as good as it should be, drop us an email here in the next fortnight.

NatRoad agrees that strengthening driver competencies, skills assessment and licensing policy needs to be a national priority. You can also participate in a short Austroads online survey here or read a discussion paper.
