Safety issue

Regulatory requirements for commercial drivers in the road-train truck driver's age group dictate that every five years MC class licence holders are required to undergo a vision test. More extensive medical assessments are required only when a condition is reported by a health professional or self reported by the licence holder.

Safety Recommendation

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the National Transport Commission and jurisdictions note the wider implications of this safety issue and consider measures to address them.
