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.

Queensland TWU Branch Secretary Hughie Williams says the cost of inexperienced drivers on the roads is becoming unbearable, both financially and emotionally.

"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.

"We can not afford to lose anymore lives on our roads, its affecting too many families and the state financially.
