Type-1 Road Trains operating under the National Class 2 Road Train Authorisation Notice 2022

Road trains that operate on a network in the north west of Victoria either under the NHVR National Class 2 Road Train Authorisation Notice 2022 or under a permit are not considered to be HPFVs in Victoria and are not subject to the Victorian PBS & HPFV Telematics Conditions. If a Type-1 road train must access roads other than those stated on Victoria's Gazetted Road Train Network, they may need to meet the conditions of HPFVs, including the telematics conditions.

Under the National Class 2 Road Train Authorisation Notice 2022 vehicles at Higher Mass Limits (HML) are required to have TMA or alternatively IAP.
