About Doubles in ProMods

Hi everyone!

Quick note about transit between the two sections of Spain:
We understand that you might get a Double job from the East side of Spain to the West. In this case, we recommend taking the N330a through Huesca and N134 to Pau to the A64 for Bayonne. Follow the reverse for West to East. The route through Andorra is not suitable for Doubles.

Normal Program:
Just a note about Doubles. Doubles are only permitted in certain countries in Europe. The countries that allow them are depicted in the map below:

With SCS' addition of doubles, we've expanded the support for Doubles to everywhere in Europe that permits them.

We expanded support to only these countries very deliberately. For example, Doubles won't appear in the list for jobs from Spain to the other countries.

Therefore, we are not supporting Doubles outside of Denmark, Finland, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden.

A map of where we are supporting doubles is below:

Reports about Doubles getting stuck in scenery or buildings, getting stuck, spawning in such a way that they're not accessible, having their parking bays blocked or having any other kind of issue outside of the supported countries will be closed as 'Won't Fix'.

If/when more countries permit Doubles IRL, we will re-evaluate this policy.

Have fun with 2.20!

I have never seen a truck / trailer / trailer combination in the UK. Only Tandems are allowed rather than double trailers.

One company did get a limited permit to conduct a trial operating Doubles in the UK in I think 2014, but the permit was not reissued by the UK Government when it expired.

That company is still campaigning to get doubles permitted in the UK, but as of now, Doubles are 100% illegal in the UK on public roads.

I hear that various European countries are conducting various limited trials with longer combinations than currently ordinarily permitted. E.g. my lifelong trucker friend (lifelong trucker and lifelong friend) informed me during one of our chats that Finland is conducting trials with 34m combinations with tractor + extra-long semi-trailer + long full trailer and 33m combinations with lorry + dolly + B-link semi-trailer + long semi-trailer.

We are aware of a specific part of Sweden where 44m Combined Multiples are permitted. We are still investigating how much granularity we have to restrict trailer combinations.

OK, cool! I wasn't actually making a suggestion or request, it's just an interesting subject to discuss. :D

As a Norwegian, i can't say i've seen these kinds of doubles very often. I think they are very limited to certain roads. I live on the western side of the country, but maybe there is some down in the Oslo area.
Idk, it seems rare from my point of view though :)

Doesn't seem to stop circuses!
