What HR Truck Training Should I Choose?

There are three transmission options when it comes to obtaining your HR licence:

HR – Automatic/Restricted
HR – Synchro /Restricted
HR -Unrestricted/Open

Both HR Automatic and HR Synchro licences are restricted types, which means you can only drive these kinds of trucks on the road. If you wish to drive all three transmission types, we recommend choosing a HR Unrestricted licence, which is conducted using crash box transmission with double clutching.

Prerequisites for HR Licence

★★
To upgrade to a heavy vehicle licence (class LR, MR, HR, HC) you must first pass a practical driving test. This requires for you to have held a car licence for a minimum of 2 years, or to have had your Medium Rigid truck licence for at least 12 months. You will also be required to pass a written test on heavy vehicle road rules if you’ve never held a truck licence before to ensure you’re ready for heavy rigid truck training in Brisbane.

What your HR – Heavy Rigid Truck Training and Licence allows you to drive.

When you obtain your HR licence through our truck lessons, you must follow the Queensland Department of Main Roads and Transport laws, which allow you to drive:

  • A class MR vehicle.
  • A bus (more than 8t GVM with more than 2 axles) with or without a trailer of not more than 9t GVM.
  • A truck including a prime mover (more than 8t GVM with more than 2 axles) with or without a trailer of not more than 9t GVM.
  • An articulated bus.
  • 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).

Heavy rigid truck training can open up a wide array of job opportunities in the logistics and transport field, particularly for freighters. HR truck lessons are also extremely useful for firefighters, delivery drivers, coach bus drivers and more.
