As I understand it no. Semi is the next step up from truck then there are B doubles which I think are called multi combination but which can be driven in towns. You have to take a test to go from semi to B double. I am not sure if a Road train licence is the same as a B double but road trains can only be driven in certain areas and have to be broken up before going into a town of any size.
A B double is like two semis coupled and are as common as muck in an industrial area like Wollongong:
These can be driven anywhere in NSW unlike road trains.
BTW I think that is right - I am not an expert on this. A B-Double is a maximum of 25 metres whereas a semi is 19 metres and a road train 54metres
