What kind driving license you need to transport big loads

it is not a license you need (it is just the normal truck license) but a qualification to transport heavy, oversized loads

same as ADR where you must have a qualification that states you can handle the load you are hauling and know hat to do if something happened

The reason why am I advocating for T800 and T880 is cause the game needs more trucks,and at the moment it seems that only PACCAR is open for some kind of cooperation.In long term though,if some miracle happens and other truck manufacturers come to their senses,that will open the way for trucks like 122SD,9900i,Granite and etc.After all,they have same role,being the workhorse in their representative companies.Plus if you see all those(or majority of them) videos on the net featuring special transport in the US,you see tri-axles trucks doing the job.

ATS trucks licenses for fresh, new trucks it's a purely speculative subject since SCS has kept us in the dark about that.. yet on ETS2 they manage to add a brand new scania (and perhaps the new renault is coming too). SCS should really bring some light into that matter, of why ATS is stuck with the same 4 trucks..

I think SCS has a NDA with all manufacturers, so that they don't repeat the mistake with Mercedes

Scania them self revealed that the New Scania will be available in ETS, so they gave SCS the OK without them even asking for it, Renault has to go through Volvo and it seams they have solved it with Volvo and now we could get the Renault, same with MAN, whatever it was that delayed it

Yeah, that's my point.. they seem to have figured it out within ETS trucks additions, but regarding ATS licenses something is not progressing at all.. thing is we don't know if it's SCS fault or rather companies fault.. and NDA's are on the table as well.. if that's the case well, we won't know for sure what's cooking til some of them talks out.. SCS or license companies..

The more ST type loads I am seeing on youtube, the more I see 6x4 being used. Like Crocko From Oz, stated, the dolly does take on a lot of the weight in lieu of that 3rd axle. Based on each states regulations, the number of axles kicks in and the lack of 8x4 can be compensated with extra trailer axles. I think SCS can come up with some very unique trailers to transport certain types of cargo. We should see at least 3 new ST trailers to make ATS ST worth the purchase. The heavy haul trailers are already there and will be used for some things. A good 8-12 different cargo loads would make it a very worthy purchase. But to make ST feel special, it needs a trailer similar to videos in this thread. Now that I think about it, for the US ST trailers that require and operator, SCS could program an operator in the cockpit to help steer the additional dolly's. I assume programming can be done similarly to the way that steerable axles work in ETS2. Some US trailers have steerable axles anyways.

Some of those massive loads that people are posting in here are definitely cool. The limiting factor to get that cargo from point A to B is, are there any routes that do not have bridges and narrow roads (guard rail obstructions). One options to bypass those obstacles are to take exit ramps to by pass bridges and get back on the highway on the other side of the bridge. But if a load requires a push truck, it is too heavy for this game more than likely. I would like for ATS's ST to definitely make a big impression. Cargo options are WIDE OPEN. There are tons of options that can be used for ST and for that matter, more can be added to heavy haul as well. I am all in for variety. Everyone must realize that ST has to be reasonable and within the current game mechanics and physics.

@LuisP8. I am there with you buddy. It would be nice if SCS could shed a little light on truck licenses as far as where they stand. At the same time, they are going about it the right way to avoid jeopardizing anything by not saying anything. It is one of those gray areas. If the US manufactures were a little more open minded, something would have gave by now. So whether it is all them or part SCS, we don't know. But I agree that if Paccar is the only truck manufacturer in game, I don't see why SCS can't go after more licenses from them. It could also be possible that Paccar only wanted those 4 to be released for the time being to see how their trucks are depicted and perceived by the community. I think the biggest issues with all the others is that SCS is not a US gaming studio, SCS is not willing to pay the fee they want or Paccar has an agreement to only feature their trucks. One thing for sure is that one, two or all three could apply.
