Fatigue Management

Fatigue Management Courses

National heavy vehicle driver fatigue laws apply to fatigue-regulated heavy vehicles. Specifically, vehicles which are:

  • a vehicle with a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of over 12t
  • a combination when the total of the GVM is over 12t
  • buses with a GVM over 4.5t fitted to carry more than 12 adults (including the driver)
  • a truck, or a combination including a truck, with a GVM of over 12t with a machine or implement attached.
