LR Licence or also known as Light Rigid Truck Licence

In order to obtain any LR Licence in NSW, it is the law that you complete a Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment (HVCBA) with an Accredited Training Provider. At Core Driving School we are accredited to provide all aspects of theory and practical training and assessment to ensure you obtain your licence as soon as possible. We have extensive experience in training and assessing for LR licences and recently updated our LR bus used for running the course. Our LR Licence course is frequently attended by those wishing to join NSW Ambulance so that they are able to safely operate these vehicles.

Light Rigid Licence applies to:

  • Small trucks with a gross vehicle mass up to 8 tonnes.
  • Any towed trailer must not weigh more than 9 tonnes.
  • Buses that seat more than 12 adults (including the driver) up to 8 tonnes.

The LR Licence course is run in two parts. Firstly with a trainer who will guide you through each skill required in the assessment and then the assessor. It can generally be completed in one day unless a student requires a little more time working on a particular skill. At Core Driving School it is our goal to ensure all students are equipped with all the necessary skills required to pass their assessment with confidence.

Under HVCBA, drivers are assessed against specific criteria relating to the safe operation of heavy vehicles. The LR Licence assessment is then conducted under a range of conditions. The assessor must be accredited by the RMS and it is a requirement under HVCBA that your training and assessment are conducted by different assessors. At Core Driving School we look after this for you and ensure that the assessor that delivers your training will not be the same assessor that conducts your Final Competency Assessment.

At Core Truck Driving School we offer all our LR Licence courses in the Sydney, Penrith, Campbelltown, Newcastle, Central Coast and Wollongong regions. We offer flexible training hours, including early morning and in the afternoons to fit with your schedule. If you meet appropriate criteria and wish to obtain your LR Licence, please call us on 1800 00 CORE or book online to ensure your place in our next LR Licence course.
