Do you need a license to operate a vacuum truck?

Whether you need a license to operate a vacuum truck or not can be a difficult question to answer. There is no specific license that you need to provide in order to operate a vacuum truck but experience and training is required in order to work on construction sites. Also the weight of the vacuum truck will depend on whether you need just a class C driver's license or a heavy vehicle license.Using a vacuum truck without any training is a recipe for disaster, they are complex machines with a number of functions. One wrong move can mean dangerous consequences for all involved. There are a number of training facilities that offer variations of vacuum truck training, which is the best way to become a qualified vacuum truck operator.If you are wanting to hire a vacuum truck, the service generally comes as a wet hire - with an operator - as the machine is not something that a lot of people can use. Because of this, hire rates will always lean on the more expensive side but if you pick the right vacuum truck hire supplier you’ll see that you get your money's worth.
