Do you need National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation? That is the question that many transport operators and heavy vehicle drivers ask themselves when they are deciding which accreditation to get. If the answer is “yes,” then we recommend getting NHVAS accreditation. This does not only mean complying with Australian law, but it also means being in compliance with other countries. There’s a lot of benefits to be had! In this blog post, we will discuss who needs NHVAS accreditation and what it entails.
Heavy vehicle drivers who want to transport anything over a certain weight
Heavy vehicle drivers who want to transport goods over a certain weight need National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation. This is because the NHVAS scheme ensures that heavy vehicles are safe and have been checked for defects before they can be used on public roads in Australia, which helps keep other road users safer too! The accreditations also ensure compliance with international standards – this means you will not only comply with Australian law but others as well so it’s worth considering if your business operates internationally or has plans of doing soon. If any driver needs more information about how their company could get accredited under these schemes then we recommend contacting the NHVAS accreditation consultant.
Drivers who need their heavy vehicle to be accredited for interstate or overseas travel
Drivers who need their heavy vehicle to be accredited for interstate or overseas travel are required to have a National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme – NHVAS accreditations. This is because the heavy vehicle needs an Australian Design Rule (ADR) approval before it can be used on public roads in Australia.
National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation is a mandatory requirement for all heavy vehicle drivers in Australia.
National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation is a mandatory requirement for all heavy vehicle drivers in Australia. The National Scheme was introduced to help reduce the number of accidents involving trucks and other large vehicles on Australian roads, which has been steadily increasing over recent years due largely to an increase in truck traffic volume as well more goods being transported by road instead than rail or sea freighting methods (due mainly because it’s cheaper). It also helps keep our environment cleaner too! As such NHVAS accreditations are required before you can drive your commercial motor-vehicle interstate – even if just across state borders within Victoria/New South Wales etc., so make sure that any driver who needs their HGV accredited gets one ASAP otherwise they’ll be breaking local.
The benefits of having NHVAS Accreditation
The benefits of having NHVAS Accreditation are that it will make you eligible to drive your heavy vehicle interstate even if just across state borders. It also allows for the driver’s employer or principal, who is operating a fleet of vehicles with NHVAS accredited drivers in them and have an Australian Business Number (ABN) registered as operator under National Heavy Vehicle Accreditations Scheme.
