How to get a LR, MR, HR, HC Truck Licence


In order to hold a Heavy Vehicle Truck Licence, you first must complete a Driver Knowledge Test (DKT)  with the RMS. Once DKT is completed, you can choose Truck Training Course with a school of your choice. Once you have passed your DKT, you would receive 2 books (Guide book & Log book). We would need the guide book to train and educate you on all the necessary criteria’s and the Log book to be filled out on all the training components/criteria’s being completed.

We like to call it the 3 step system.
