    This period must have occurred in the last 5 years. Can be continuous or made up of different individual lengths of time (excluding any time that your licence was suspended, surrendered, cancelled or expired).

Multi Combination (MC) Truck Licence

An MC license permits you to drive heavy vehicles with multiple trailers, commonly known as road trains. These vehicles have a significant impact on logistics, transport, and the movement of goods over long distances. Obtaining an MC license involves mastering the skills required to safely handle these complex and extended combinations on the road.

Possible Roles

Long-Haul Truck Driver: As a long-haul truck driver with an MC license, you'll be responsible for transporting goods across vast distances. You might drive articulated trucks or road trains, ensuring timely and secure delivery of cargo.

Livestock Transporter: Some regions require specialised licenses for transporting livestock. An MC license could lead you to a role where you transport cattle, sheep, or other animals using multi-combination vehicles, catering to agricultural needs.

Heavy Equipment Hauler: Certain industries require the transportation of oversized and heavy equipment, like construction machinery or industrial components. An MC license enables you to move these items safely and efficiently.

Freight Transport Operator: With an MC license, you could establish your own freight transport business. You would manage a fleet of heavy vehicles, plan routes, oversee scheduling, and ensure the efficient movement of goods.

Mining and Resource Industry Driver: In regions with significant mining and resource industries, MC license holders are in demand to transport raw materials, equipment, and goods to and from remote mining sites.

Road Train Operator: With an MC license, you might work specifically as a road train operator. This role involves managing and driving exceptionally long combinations of trailers, often in remote and challenging environments.

Potential wages could be in the region of $125,000 to $125,000 per year
