    Good day pommie. To be honest with you we don't have enough Aussie traffic to justify a forum for it. You can use the search feature above to help in finding certain posts. There's a few from Australia but not many that I remember.

    I can't hold my boots all day! :)

    It's the world wide web! :)


    Of course not. It's recognized through bordering countries only by agreements.
    Though that doesn't stop you from obtaining a foreign license if you have the skills.

    Like if pommie was to come here he would be issued a non-resident CDL if he has a work visa. Something similar would be needed if you went to another country.

    Do you need to be a resident to get a CDL in Australia? How much do vac truck drivers in the Australian oilfield make per hour?

    Superannuation is money your employer has to put in a fund for your retirement. It's at 9% of your wages at the moment government is increasing it to 12%.

    Yeah even though it is a "truckers forum" its mostly for american drivers not that they don't mind our comments but you know what they say "when in Rome do as the Romans do" There are lots of jobs available through the usual channels in Australia if you are looking for a job there at the moment it would be hard to get any aussie company to sponser you to drive however if your a brit and under 32 you can actually come over on the holiday work visa check out the Aussie immigration site for more details if your over 32 then its kind of curtains with out a sponser unless you either get permanent residency or marry an Aussie gal (thats if your Crazy enough) british women are far nicer or them darn hootin tootin yanky broads aren't bad either as my old mate pete would say.
