What Lessons for my HC Licence Should I Choose?

There are two different options of transmission when it comes to obtaining your HC licence:

HC – Automatic/Restricted
HC -Unrestricted/Open

Although HC Auto is a restricted licence, the HC unrestricted test is conducted using crash box transmission with double clutching, which means you can drive all three transmission types. If you need to find out more about which licence type suits your interests, enquire with Affordable Truck School prior to your heavy combination truck lessons at our driving schools across Brisbane or Gold Coast.


To upgrade your licence to a heavy combination licence (class HC) you must have held either an MR – Medium Rigid or HR – Heavy Rigid truck licence for at least 12 months.

What your HC – Heavy Combination Truck Training and Licence allows you to drive

The Queensland Department of Main Roads and Transport laws allow you to drive.

  • A class HR vehicle.
  • A truck (more than 8t GVM) with a trailer of more than 9t GVM.
  • A prime mover (more than 8t GVM) with a trailer of more than 9t GVM (semitrailer).

A specially constructed vehicle, including a tractor (more than 8t GVM with more than 2 axles), with or without a trailer of not more than 9t GVM.

The GVM is the maximum weight that a truck can carry including its own weight. This is the maximum or total weight of a loaded rigid vehicle (including body, payload, fuel and driver). It is a figure set by the manufacturer and is lodged with registration authorities and governs all applications and is stamped on the compliance plate of the vehicle (also referred to as GVW or Gross Vehicle Weight).

A HC licence obtained through lessons from out truck driving schools can open up many job opportunities in the transport and logistics field as well as many other fields of work. HC licence is useful to have for delivery drivers, interstate and local freight distribution drivers to name a few.

What Our Client's Say About Us

Big thanks to Affordable Truck School for their help getting my MR truck license. Top tier instructors that work with you to improve your driving skills and point out what you need to do during your test to pass. And a really BIG thank you to my instructor Theo, he was really helpful during lessons cleaning up my skills and catching all the little things I was doing wrong, and if I went into a panic he’d provide a bit of comic relief to calm my nerves and get back on track. And I started lessons without driving a manual before. Thanks again to all the crew!!!!
