These include high-performance 4WDs, off road forklifts, trucks, road trains, fuel tankers and tank-carrying transporters. You may also be trained to drive landing craft and amphibious vehicles.

A member of a dynamic team of logistics professionals you'll learn important leadership and specialised skills while enjoying an active, outdoor lifestyle. Initially you only have to commit to 12 months service in the Army, and during this time you'll benefit from heavy vehicle training.
