Hi everyone, I am a newby to the site. I'm a little bit overwhelmed by it all and I am still trying to stumble my way through the site. We are coming to Brisbane in late november to activate our PR Visas. We hope to explore brisbane and also do as much work as we can to prepare ourselves for when we move permanently in July 2010. We are planning to rent in the city of brisbane for at least the first 6 months until we learn where we would like to settle. I need some help with the following if anyone can oblige:- My husband is a Class 1 HGV Driver here in the UK. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if it is as simple as him filling in a form to enable him to drive trucks in QLD? Or will he have to do practical tests, etc? The govt website is a bit vague, it refers to 'you may have to do such and such' which is unhelpful. What kind of costs, if any, are involved in gaining a QLD licence for truck drivers? Can anyone offer advice on job availabilty for truck drivers.
