What is the purpose of this course?

It includes systematic and efficient control of all vehicle functions, monitoring of traffic and road conditions, management of vehicle condition and performance and effective management of hazardous situations.

Assessment of this unit will be conducted under a wide range of driving conditions by an assessor who has been accredited by Roads and Maritime Services.

Small trucks with a gross vehicle mass (GVM) up to 8 tonnes. Any towed trailer must not weigh more than 9 tonnes GVM

Do you need a licence?

To be eligible for an LR licence course, you must:

Have held a class C licence, (except a Learner licence) or equivalent for one year or more. Any time you’ve spent on a P1 licence counts, but you can’t practice to drive an LR vehicle, or upgrade to an LR licence until you hold a P2 or full class C licence;
Pass the ‘Rigid’ Driver Knowledge Test (DKT);
Pass an eyesight test; and
Meet the required medical requirements, as determined by the licensing authority.

How long does the course take?

Drivers upgrading to the LR licence receive up to 8 hours (depending on the gearbox endorsement) of training and assessment activity time.

The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) Scheme Policies and Procedures state that a minimum of 5 hours assessment time plus Final Competency Assessment (FCA) should occur.

If additional time is required for a client to reach a competent standard, additional course fees may be applied. This is clearly explained at enquiry (email and phone), further explained and agreed upon at enrolment.

What qualification do I get?

This course is based on the requirements of the Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment (HVCBA) Scheme.
