Trucks How to Be.e a Truck Driver Ordinary desk jobs often limit the independent spirit. Everyday office routines can be.e mundane after several years. Office clothes and business suits may not be so attractive. These are some of the reasons why a career spent navigating the open road and traversing the entire country as a truck driver holds strong appeal to some job seekers. To best prepare for .mencing a career as a truck driver, here are the steps you should go through: A. Learn How to Drive a Truck Driving a truck is different to driving a car, an SUV, a van or any small vehicle for that matter. Because certain skills are required to back up and manoeuvre a large vehicle down alleys, into docks, and into the truck stop, you need to be trained by a professional. Professional driving schools teach you the skills necessary to get your career started and prepare you for large vehicle driver’s license application. The course depends on your skill level. Training could be as little as one hour for a refresher course or longer if you are a beginner. B. Get the Right Truck License There are 3 basic license codes you can get in order to drive a truck: Light Rigid, Medium Rigid, and Heavy Rigid. Light Rigid Light Rigid or LR driver’s license code entitles you to drive a bus, truck or prime mover weighing 8 tonnes Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) or less, with or without a trailer weighing 9 tonnes GVM or less; or a specially constructed vehicle weighing 8 tonnes GVM or less, with or without a trailer weighing 9 tonnes GVM or less Medium Rigid Medium Rigid or MR driver’s license code entitles you to drive an LR class vehicle, a class LR vehicle; a truck (including a prime mover) weighing more than 8 tonnes GVM, with no more than two axles, with or without a trailer weighing 9 tonnes GVM or less; a bus weighing more than 8 tonnes GVM, with no more than two axles, with or without a trailer weighing 9 tonnes GVM or less; and a specially constructed vehicle weighing more than 8 tonnes GVM with no more than 2 axles, with or without a trailer weighing 9 tonnes GVM or less.
