My dad and all his brothers are in the building trades, and I always knew I wanted to have a job like them. I can't imagine staying inside all day and slaving away in front of a computer screen. As soon as I could I started on my apprenticeship so I could get qualified and start earning the big bucks. I am going to be a roofer like dad, and maybe I'll take over his business one day. It's a slog getting through your apprenticeship, but I can see how dad has turned out, and it makes all seem worthwhile. I want to follow in his footsteps.

Just because you know how to drive a car does not qualify you to operate a multi-combination truck. The machines are different from other trucks in as far as operation and maneuverability go. A multi-combination truck license is considered the highest level of heavy vehicle license in Australia; therefore, one must undergo thorough training to get the permit. An MC course makes this possible since it introduces drivers to the nitty-gritty of operating a multi-combination truck.
