    Default AMS driver training ad

    anyone catch the whole AMS Group Limited driver training ad on tv today?
    did i see right that they are trying to claim 4x4+ boat or horsefloat or empty light truck is over 4500kg and your driving illegally ! ! !

    google showed that this add was removed last year because of it being misleading.

    Are they saying the driver would need a class 2 ht?
    Wouldn't really matter if you got caught and weighed with 4WD over 4500kg you would be done for overloading.

    Many years ago I was driving one of those Holden 1 Ton utes with a tandem trailer loaded up and got pulled over, had to go to a weight bridge and got a ticket for driving overweight and not having the right class of license. Only had a car license.

    yeah they are showing normal vehicle trailer combo's that are clearly under 4500kg and claiming you need class 2.....and guess what they just happen to sell
    they showed a 4x4 with medium boat, one towing a dual horse float and empty small truck all of which are commonly used and are commonly under the max weight.
    if they had shown big boat, 4 horse float or fully loaded truck it would be fine. but of course they have to show what every one normally uses to scare people into buying their courses.

    many years ago the limit was only 3500kg which was very easy to go over.
