The term is most commonly used in American English and Australian

is a British word for a furniture removal van that has now fallen
out of usage. It was originally coined in 1830 as the name of craft
shop or bazaar, in Motcomb Street in Belgravia, London. The shop
soon closed down and the building was turned into furniture warehouse,
but the name was kept. Vehicles transporting furniture to and from
the building, known as pantechnicon vans, soon came to be known
simply as pantechnicons.

A hand truck is a small human powered truck. It consists of a metal
plate attached to metal tubing and two large wheels. The metal tubing
is bent to form a long handle, so as to provide good mechanical

and the truck and object are tilted backward until the weight is
balanced over the large wheels, making otherwise bulky and heavy
objects easy to move.
A railroad truck is a movable platform on pairs of wheels which
supports one end of a railroad car; it is also called a bogie. The
term is also used for such a part on a skateboard.
Truck is also a (now little used) term meaning to barter or negotiate
exchange; it survives in such expressions as "truck farming"
and to have no truck with someone.

Driving involves controlling a vehicle, usually a motor vehicle
such as a truck, bus, motorcycle, or car (for bicycles and mounted
animals and, at least in the U. K. and U. S., motorcycles, the corresponding
activity is called riding). truck
Driving consists of knowing how to operate the mechanisms which
control the speed and direction (which in technical terminology
are both components of the velocity), and the braking of the vehicle,
but especially how to do so safely.
The skill of
safe driving is necessary to avoid collisions, which kill many thousands
of people annually. Safe driving is much more than following the
rules of the road. It goes beyond that into the cultivation of good
habits, maintaining attention, and a thoughtful, cooperative attitude
that avoids and prevents accidents: defensive driving.
In most countries,
driving is an activity which is heavily governed by law. Laws cover
the construction and use of vehicles, the rules of the road, the
requirements for driver and vehicle licensing, vehicle taxation,
safety inspections and compulsory insurance. These laws reflect
the high degree of responsibility which is conferred upon drivers
(and also on manufacturers) of vehicles to make them as safe in
practice as they feasibly can be. Drivers are almost universally
required to take lessons with an approved instructor and pass a
driving test before being granted a license. The trend has been
towards increasingly tougher tests in the last three decades. In
addition, new drivers may have additional restrictions in some countries
- for example in Australia, novice drivers are required to carry
'P' (probationary) plates and have lower speed limits, alcohol limits,
and other restrictions imposed for two years following a successful
driving test. Driving laws are usually enforced by the police, and
a large part of the modern force is dedicated to driving law enforcement.
Many countries have separate authorities with powers to enforce
driving laws - for example the Australian Roads and Traffic Authority
(RTA) which is responsible for driver licensing but also highway
maintenance and highway patrol, etc.
