There are many offences concerning the driving of heavy vehicles due to increasing regulation to improve safety standards.
A useful website containing information for truck drivers about the law governing them and their work is the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator at https://www.nhvr.gov.au/.
The website contains relevant forms, information on access permits, and industry updates as well as up-to-date details on penalties and infringements including an indication, where relevant, of the range of penalties imposed by the courts.
