MC Licence (Multi Combination truck or B Double truck licence)
An MC Truck Licence, or multi-combination truck licence, covers you to drive vehicles with more than one trailer. This includes B-Double, Road trains, prime movers, low loader dolly and low loader trailer combinations. It is the logical step to obtain your HC Licence and get some on road experience before moving on to you multi-combination licence. Not only do insurance companies and ethical employers prefer this, it ensures that when you drive an MC vehicle you are doing so with the required confidence and ability. At Core Driving School we are accredited to provide MC Licence training and assessment. We are able to build upon your foundation of skills and knowledge with HC vehicles and provide you with further expertise to increase your competence, ensuring you can drive MC vehicles safely.
The Multi Combination Licence course involves training in both the theoretical and practical criteria as required under the HVCBA. It also includes the final competency assessment. Courses 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 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.
To be eligible to attend an MC licence course you must;
- Have held an HR or HC Licence or equivalent for 12 months or more. Please note you can only practice MC driving and upgrade to an MC licence when you hold a full licence.
In order to attend a Multi Combination Licence course you must first attend an RMS office in person and;
- Provide a completed Licence Application Form
- Provide acceptable proof of identity
- Pass an eyesight test
- Provide a medical report (if applicable)
- Pass the MC knowledge test
- Pay the appropriate fee.
You will then be issued with a Heavy Vehicle HVCBA Learner’s Log Book and a copy of the Guide to Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment. The guide will provide you with all the necessary information required regarding what tasks you need to complete in the training and your final assessment. All progress is recorded in your log book which shows your progress in developing the skills required to upgrade your licence. It is important that you keep your Log Book until you have passed your final assessment.
Once you have successfully completed your Final Competency Assessment you simply attend an RMS centre to be issued with your upgraded licence.
