Having a Multi-Combination (MC) class heavy vehicle licence means that you can drive any heavy combination unit that is towing two or more trailers with each having a gross vehicle mass greater than 9 tonnes. As a heavy truck driver you can expect to transport bulky goods or materials. You might even specialise as a log hauler, livestock transporter or tanker driver.
If you love big trucks and the freedom of being on the open road then you may want to consider life as a MC Truck Driver. You could expect to work long shifts and you may need to assist with the loading or unloading of goods. You would also need to remain aware of any safety issues, especially when carrying high risk goods or substances. Depending on your cargo you may be required to drive in rural areas and on unsealed roads, so practicing safe and responsible driving skills is important.
You may be required to load goods onto the truck either by hand or with a forklift or other lifting equipment. You would have to make sure that the loads are placed correctly and secured to avoid any damage to the goods or the truck. You might need to perform pre and mid trip vehicle inspections and carry out basic vehicle maintenance from time time. Administrative duties might also be required, such as checking off items, collecting payments and issuing receipts.
