A loophole?


As of yesterday I have my full Heavy-Combination Drivers license. To the un-educated: That means I can drive Semi-Trailers (but not B-Doubles) anywhere in Australia. I still have 1 more year on my P's before I get my full car license.

Um... Why?? (Talking about getting your license that's not a car license)... I have less than a year to go on my P's!! (I can go for my full's in Sept)...

I think the system is silly, how scary is it to think that people with minimal experience are allow on the road with a 10 tonne truck. Has the government thought about the rest of the publics safety...?

Tiarnee.

I'm not sure how often you will use it before getting your full car licence but that is still pretty cool. Congrats.

Tiarnee, clearly not. Haha. For the record: our semi weighs about 17 tonne empty. It's legal loaded weight is 42.5 tonnes. Or the weight of approx. 40 cars.
Aaron, It will not get used till December, then it will be used every day until late January.
