Replacing existing driveway. Help, please.

My driveway is 500' of asphalt, to a "landing" of concrete 30' x 40'. This concrete part is 15 years old and has many cracks and 2 areas that sound "void" and is on a gentle slope. Rather than replace with concrete, I'd like to try pavers. Here are my questions and thank you, as always, in advance for the great advice in here. This place ROCKS! --Bryant

1. I'm assuming that here are specific pavers for this application (vehicles)..? One of my trucks is a dually.
2. Putting in pavers for this application, is mortarless best?
3. The base: where do I begin? sand, crushed rock, plastic on the dirt...??...landscaping cloth...??
4. I'll surely read all I can on this before I start, but I appreciate the "live" help you can get in here.

Thanks again. --Bryant
