An independent review of the National Heavy Vehicle Driver Competency Framework shows that the current truck driver licensing system is inadequate.

With a shortage of new starters in the trucking industry, an improvement of industry professionalism and strengthening driver training would make driving more, not less, attractive as a career while also delivering important safety outcomes.

The session will discuss:

  • Driver training and the key challenges identified in the Austroads review of National Heavy Vehicle Driver Competency Framework
  • How training standards should be improved and what industry associations can do
  • The potential for an offside driver program, as proposed by Daimler Future Leader Athol Carter
