    Info re HGV Drivers in Perth

    Hi there, I am pretty new to this so I will try and keep this short..... My OH is an Hgv Driver, not on the SOL, so causing a big headache, He is looking into taking a course, 1st idea was electrician but we have been told to look at bricklaying as he can gain an NVQ level 2 and then try and apply through Vetassess !!! I am really not sure if this is the right info but we will give anything a go, Eric, on this forum, said that he heard of someone getting a visa or sponsorship being an HGV Driver,something to do with employment in Perth, he said to look through the threads, does this ring any bells to anyone, or can anyone give me any advise. Why is it all so confusing !!!!! HELP........ Sara x :arghh:

    Drivers License

    Can anyone tell me for sure, is it right that when we arrive in Brisbane, we have to take a written test, to pass for a Queensland drivers license? Some people have said this is true others say it's not. So what is the right answer on this one. If you get the license then, is it valid to drive inter state all over Australia.:goofy: Thanks folks, EMMY GREEN

    457 for Truck Drivers

    Hi All We came out to Queensland in the middle of June looking for sponsorship under the S457 visa as a "Truckie" Loads of vacancies for Drivers but just over a week after we arrived the Government decided to freeze the allocation of 457 visas for Truck Drivers while a "Working Party" looks into whether this is the best option to resolve the Truck Driver shortage! They're not due to publish their findings until the end of the year, it seems the Unions are the biggest opposers arguing that Foreign workers will drive the wages down. Doesn't seem to be aimed at Poms in general though aas they all seem to like our work ethics. Now waiting to hear from an Agency down in Victoria if there's any way around the visas for us, as originaly the 457 was our only option for getting out here? Has anybody else any experience of this or any suggestions? One thing this is a Bloody big country, huge drives between the major towns but beautifully clean and tidy what we've seen so far. We're now up in North Queensland (Port Douglas) holidaying proper while we wait for news.
  7. :unsure: Can anybody please help me, we are looking for jobs in Melbourne but are having difficulty with driving My husband has a class 2 driving licence, but we don't know the equivellent ? of this in australia. Can anybody please tell us What is a class 2? :wideeyed: and what is a class one? anyone PLEASE!!!!!!:eek: mel:arghh:
