Course delivery

The theory component of the course is a 3-hour session delivered in a classroom format.

Students upgrading from HR then receive a 3-hour familiarisation with articulated vehicles in a Heavy Combination (HC).

The practical component of the course is conducted one-to-one and scheduled as a 1 day programme. The practical training begins in the yard to complete reversing and coupling/uncoupling trailers, followed by the on-road driving component.

Please note that all students are different and some students may require additional training to achieve competency. We will discuss arrangements for additional training and assessment on a case by case basis.
