HR – Heavy Rigid Licence

HR vehicles include:

  • Trucks and buses with a GVM more than eight tonnes, and three or more axles
  • Any towed trailer must not weigh more than nine tonnes GVM
  • Bendy buses. Even though these vehicles are articulated, they’re treated as rigid vehicles.

To apply for an HR licence, you must:

  • Have held a class C licence, (except a learner licence) or equivalent for two years or more. Any time you’ve spent on a P1 licence counts, but you can’t practice to drive an HR vehicle, or upgrade to an HR licence until you hold a P2 or full class C licence
  • Pass the HR knowledge test (Cost $44.00)
  • Pass an eyesight test
  • Get a Learner CBA log book and CBA guide book from your local RMS.
  • Read the Guide Book thoroughly before your first training session.
  • Undertake Heavy Vehicle competency based assessment
    Note: Red P Plate holders are not eligible to apply for an HR Licence.

NGDT Training and Assessment

Contact Mitch at NGDT on 0419250045 to book your Training and final assessment.

Please have your Logbook and Driver Licence with you when you call, as there are details within the Logbook and Licence which we require when processing your booking. These details will be checked by your Assessor against the RMS database to confirm your eligibility (eyesight test recorded, correct Logbook and licence class approved) to undertake the course. NOTE this check does not allow us to see your driver history.  After successfully completing the licence course you will be issued with a Certificate of Competence by your Instructor/Assessor. Take this Certificate of Competence to your local RMS Motor Registry and exchange it for your upgraded Licence. ($24 RMS fee)
