In June 2016 we arranged to speak with Mary Kovacevic from the Drive to Survive driving academy. Drive to Survive offers a range of heavy vehicle training packages for a variety of rigid, articulated and combination vehicles. Mary comes from an extensive road transport background as a driver and an owner driver. The bulk of Mary’s work has been in tippers but has done some interstate and country work as well.
One of the very unique facts about this driving school located in Queanbeyan NSW is that you learn to drive in a Kenworth with an 18 speed road ranger transmission. In this Whiteline short which is only a small part of our interview with Mary, AJ asks the question, why does she have Kenworth Trucks and not some others.
