Blayze Williams, who wears blonde hair extensions and pink steel cap boots when she is behind the wheel of her semi-trailer, is part of the new wave of female truckies.

Blayze said she fell into the industry after she was cleaning trucks for work and was told she needed a licence 'to move them around'.

'When I used to see them pull up beside me I was scared, but I found I really enjoyed driving them,' she said.


“Other drivers look at you like you’re a mythical creature, a unicorn or something,’’ she said. “When I’m out in town and security look at my ID they see ‘HC’ (heavy combination) and say there’s no way you drive semis.

“I just love driving the trucks, I think it’s awesome that they’re so big and I feel cool driving them,’’ the Kudla resident said.

“The only thing I don’t like about it are the places that are hard to get the truck into.”

As the only female driver at Toll NQX in South Australia, Blayze said she gets some pretty interesting reactions when she is driving.

“I’ve had people wind down their windows at traffic lights and yell out ‘you’re the hottest truck driver I’ve ever seen,’ but I get embarrassed.”

'I've always liked to be different, so being a female truck driver just came naturally. I've always dressed like a bit of a Barbie, but I feel like one of the boys.'

Blayze - who is also a current national champion horse-rider - bagged her first job as a trucker one year after first getting behind the wheel.

And despite not fitting the trucker stereotype, she quickly found she had a taste for the perks of life on the road.

Studies have shown women make up as few as three in every 100 Australian truck drivers.

But Blayze claims she hasn't had much trouble driving through gender-based obstacles, and said it is actually a welcoming environment to work in.

There is currently a national shortage of truck drivers in Australia and Blayze said more women should consider the profession as a career.

She added: 'There's a lot more freedom to the highway than an office job, and no one is hovering over your desk.

'You do have to have a tough skin. A lot of the boys can be a bit crude, so it's not the right place for you if you're easily offended, but I actually haven't come across many creeps in my career.

'More girls should give it a chance. The hours can be long, but there is great money to be made and it's a lot of fun.'
