MR licence – Everything you need to know

What is a MR licence and when will a person need to have one?

There are many Australians out there who are curious about what exactly a MR licence is, and in what circumstances they will need to have one. There are many different jobs which will require a MR licence, so it is important that people are informed about what that entails. A MR truck is otherwise known as a Medium Rigid truck (or bus). This means that it has a GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) of more than 8 tonnes and 2 axles. It also means that any towed trailer must not weigh more than 9 tonnes GVM. There are many different trades and professions out there that will require a worker to drive one of these larger vehicles such as a courier, a warehouse manager, a security vehicle driver, someone who works in construction or road maintenance, a farm worker, a bus driver, or something else entirely such as motoring journalist. Whatever the type of job may be, the only way that someone can be legally allowed to drive such a vehicle is by obtaining a MR licence. Most jobs out there will not hire someone unless they have this qualification first, however, many positions do change and evolve so a person may need to obtain this in order to progress in their career. This can lead to more money and more job satisfaction. Furthermore, obtaining a licence will ensure that drivers are confident and safe on the roads which will make Australia a safer place to drive all around.
