I’ve never driven a truck, what should I know?

What documents should I bring if I have an international license?
We will need to see your license, passport and proof of local address. This can be a hotel booking receipt, rental agreement, bank statement or utility bill from the address you are staying at. If the license is not written in English, you will also need an official translation or International Drivers Permit.
