TWU wants B-double licence laws changed

TWU wants changes to Queensland licence system, claiming a light B-double licence can be obtained without practical exam

The Transport Workers Union (TWU) is pressing the Queensland Sate Government to amend its driver licence system, claiming a light B-double prime mover licence can be obtained without doing a practical exam.

"With the State’s road toll at 228, 23 more than this time last year the Government urgently needs to upgrade its licensing regulations," Williams says.
