The Transport General Authority has issued a guide for truck drivers on its website (tga.gov.sa) in three different languages: (Arabic - English - Urdu), which contains instructions on safety conditions that must be met and followed by truck drivers, necessary general requirements, instructions, and skills and rights for the driver.
The guide also illustrates the best ways to check the vehicle, know the dimensions and weights of the trucks per the Saudi standard specifications, and instructions for controlling, planning, and monitoring the vehicle while driving.
The 11-part guide aims to help truck drivers know the public safety requirements for professional and safe driving and emanates from the Transport General Authority’s efforts in facilitating access to the regulations of the authority and other relevant official bodies, and awareness of public safety requirements in transport vehicles while transporting non-dangerous goods between and within cities.
The guide represents a guiding framework for truck drivers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and includes a set of procedures and measures that the driver goes through during his trips, in addition to the obligations that he must be adhered to ensure a safe transportation journey, starting from the shipping site until reaching the destination. The guide can be downloaded via the website of the Transport General Authority (tga.gov.sa).
