Classes of heavy vehicles fact sheet – NHVR law

The Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) provides for three classes of heavy vehicle as a means of managing the different access requirements of different types of heavy vehicles. Some, but not all, jurisdictions had similar classes under previous legislation.

The Classes of heavy vehicles in the HVNL fact sheet (PDF, 1.6MB)illustrates some common examples from the three different classes of heavy vehicles under the HVNL.

Vehicle classes appear in permits, notices and other NHVR publications and this fact sheet can be used as a quick reference tool for drivers, operators, operation managers and your customers.
