Last Free Range Friday, James from Launceston called about an issue he had gaining his heavy vehicle licence. He was unable to do the licence test as new regulations for the National Heavy Vehicle Driver Competency Framework were yet to be passed by many providers, despite there being a deadline of 22March 2017.

As a result of this, James lost the job he had lined up.

Today, Business Development Manager for Driver Education Centre of Australia Tasmanian Division Phil Duthoit called in to clarify the situation. After speaking on air, he called back to let us know that he had been in contact with James. Listen below to find out if the situation was resolved:
