That’s another fancy way of saying transport operator (IE. Driver). Though the machinery you’ll be operating should be LARK-V (Lighter, Amphibious Resupply, Cargo, 5 ton).

Congrats! If you covered a particular mileage through your NS, you will be issued driving licenses. Just think how much time and money you can save by not having to learn driving commercially.

Realistically speaking, not everyone might clock the required mileage and qualify for the conversion from military to civilian license. You might end up waiting at the same spot more than driving distances (to clock the mileage).

LARK-V travels both land and water, so the distance covered via water might not be counted to your mileage for the conversion. Though the military might have updated their policy for this. You might want to clarify and find out more when there.

I’m not sure of the exact figures for the distance required to clocked. I last heard the bar might have been lowered abit too.

It used to be 7000km (for normal drivers) and no traffic offense. You will automatically get your class 3 upon ORD.

I heard its now 5000km and you get class 3 AND 4. That is a steal!

Not sure how it works now but when i was active, the sgts will give priority to those who are going to ORD, so all the long distance details will go to them. I'm pretty sure this is one of those unspoken rules.

Of course, there are ways to clock mileage, most of which you will find out when you get posted. All you need is paperwork

Wow thanks for the useful info! Will definitely keep a lookout on this. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but is there any more PT or any field camps for this vocation? And how long is the training course? Thank you guys for your help!

Haha thank you for your reply! Will definitely ask around when I am in the unit! At least now I don't feel so lost as compared to when I first received the posting haha

Really happy you got a good posting. Remember you started a track on BMT enlistment some months back - now you have finished your BMT and ready to move on to your next posting.

So some drivers will not get their driving license because they didn't clock enough mileage or touch wood, got into an accident. However, if you think of it positively - even if you don't have a license (I am sure you will get yours) upon ORD, you could easily pass the commercial driving test because you would have two years' experience in driving vehicles (and big vehicles too). Going directly to the driving test and not having to spend time and money learning driving is already a big plus compared with those who start from scratch.

Anyway, all the best to your next vocation!
