Do I need a manual licence?
We get this question more than you would expect, but the answer for our team and clients is always “yes.”
If you’re going out to site, 9 times out of 10, you will need to be able to operate a vehicle with a manual transmission. So, from a convenience and safety point of view, everyone on site must be able and legally licenced to drive the car/truck in the case of an emergency. These trucks aren’t just being driven on dirt tracks but active roads, so it is a requirement that anyone driving the vehicle is adequately licenced and trained.
Additionally, the Heavy Rigid (HR) vehicle licence can only be upgraded from an unrestricted manual C-class licence when it is at least two years old and no longer provisional.
So, for True Resources, it is a mandatory requirement for staff to have a manual driver’s licence before heading out to the site.
