I had to get an Artic License (semi license to you guys) and it cost me over 1000 Euro. You have to get a rigid chassis truck truck license first which is a similar cost before you can apply for the semi. Then there's courses that must be done every year that costs more money in order to be allowed drive commercially. And HGV's have to go through a comprehensive annual road test that isn't cheap and they will fail a truck for the slightest of things such as a damaged reflector strip or even the amber indicator bulbs if they're not amber enough. It's gone ridiculous. For the average farmer here it makes no sense to have such a license. Believe it or not but that same test and the license rules apply to my Dodge Dually as well. Once you have 5 axles (2 on the pickup and 3 on the cattle trailer) you need a semi license.I've been told that licensing/operating a truck in EU is very expensive and requires lots of paperwork, etc. Unaffordable for the average farmer.

The header is something I haven't seen here.
