HR Truck Licence Adelaide

Home HR Truck Licence Adelaide

Do you want to drive large rigid trucks, coaches or articulated buses? Then please call or read about our HR Truck Licence course.

HR Truck Licence Licence Information
You may drive any rigid vehicle with 3 or more axles and tow a trailer with a GVM up to 9 tonnes (and within GCM limits). Also includes an articulated bus.
Pre-requisites For Your Heavy Ridged Truck Training
Participants must have held a class car for 2 years or LR/MR for 1 year, have no outstanding business with Transport SA (i.e. unpaid parking fines or speeding tickets) and have no medical conditions that would prevent the issue of commercial driver’s licence.

Recommended Number of Lessons
We recommend drivers upgrading to the HR licence receive at least 15-18 hours of instruction (9 to 12 hours in the HR Auto Shift). 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.

Course Assessment
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. VORT (Vehicle On Road Test) is also available, and is a single pass/fail assessment at the end of the training program, for HR Auto Shift only.

Locations available (North and South)
We offer truck training from two locations, serving both the Northern and Southern suburbs. Please confirm your desired training location when booking.
