You might have heard of the Light Rigid heavy vehicle licence for smaller passenger buses or small trucks or you might know someone with a Heavy Rigid or Multi-Combination licence as they drive larger trucks and articulated vehicles such as bendy buses but there are more licences available to suit various requirements. The Light Rigid (LR) heavy vehicle licence is the one that provides you with the capability of driving buses such as the Toyota Coaster and small trucks with a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of up to eight tonnes; it is an easy licence for you to gain through Core Driving School as we are a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and perform the Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment (HVCBA). It enables you to drive small buses that might take tours around wine valley regions such as the Hunter Valley in New South Wales. Next up in the scale is the Medium Rigid (MR) licence which provides the opportunity to drive trucks and buses with a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) above eight tonnes and with two axles and any towed trailer weighing no more than nine tonnes. It’s a great licence to get you entry into the truck and bus driving field if that’s where you aim to be. The Heavy Rigid (HR) licence is common for people working in the mining industry and enables you to drive a truck or bus with a GVM of more than eight tonnes and with three or more axles as well as articulated vehicles. Not only enabling you to work in the mining industry but an HR licence can offer opportunities for freight companies such as Toll, TNT, DHL and Australia Post. The aforementioned truck licence variations are offered by Core Driving School and we aim to help you pass your assessment with flying colours so you are ready for the launch of your next career step.
