In this sector Nooteboom is a leader in innovating and manufacturing appropriate, high-quality solutions for the transport of any kind of abnormal load. The transport of abnormal loads with our advanced equipment requires a certain level of expertise and knowledge of the equipment, all the deviating regulatory requirements and of course a different style of driving on the road.The course Driver self-propelled equipment covers the safe and responsible transport of self-propelled equipment on semi low-loaders and low-loaders and/or drawbar trailers on the Dutch road network. We are talking about transports that require the driver to load and unload self-propelled or crawling equipment on the vehicle, using ramps, steel planking or wedges.
