Truck Driving in Perth

    Recommended Posts

    Has anyone gained employment within the truck driving industry in Perth?

    just wondering what type of salary can be earned driving. Just looking at what types of work I might be able to get into out there.

    Many thanks in advance.

    There used to be a guy on here looking for truck drivers to fulfil the contracts that he had http://www.driverhire.com.au/contact_us/contact_us.html

     

    There are a number of different categories of commercial licence from LR (Light Rigid) up to MC (Multi Combination) for the full roadtrain and the payscales go up accordingly.

     

    Delivery drivers in town start around $27 per hour whilst the 2 up interstate linehaul drivers make really good coin to compensate for the awful hours they put in.

     

    I would suggest if you're new to the industry, you need HR as a minimum.

    Had a relief driver in today who said he earned 180K last year operating in WA (Pilbara, Hedland etc)

     

    Downside is he said he was "never home though"

    Just stumbled across this thread. Were just looking into moving to Perth so very first steps. My first attempt was to look at the skills list and LGV / HGV ( hubby has his class 1 for 10 years) & there's no skill point for this line of work. How are you going about it ?

    :/

    There are no visas for truck drivers. Not at the minute anyway. Have to get your visa via another route.
