A HC licence allows you to drive any prime mover with a single semi-trailer, or heavy vehicle plus a single trailer greater than 9 tonnes GVM – which can also be driven with MC licence.
Recommended Number of Lessons
We recommend drivers upgrading to the HC licence receive at least 21-30 hours of instruction. Instruction is usually given in 3 hour time blocks to avoid driver fatigue. Required hours quoted are an average only – any additional hours required are discussed with individuals on a case by case basis.

Allan Miller recommends the Competency Based Training and Assessment (CBT&A) approach for drivers seeking heavy vehicle driver training. Competency Based Training is a system where assessment takes place throughout the training program, and allows for re-training and re-assessment of errors.
We provide HC training and assessment from Wingfield.
