Why you should read this handbook

This handbook tells you about some of the main legal requirements for drivers of heavy vehicles in Victoria. It is intended as a guide only and does not set out in full all the requirements of the law.

Before you read this handbook you need a general knowledge of our road laws. Road law information is contained in the Road to Solo Driving handbook available at VicRoads Customer Service Centres, RACV offices and some newsagents.

The Road to Solo Driving handbook can be viewed from the VicRoads website at vicroads.vic.gov.au
