No. As we are a registered training organization working in partnership with the Department of Transport you are able to do your truck driving training and assessment through us without a learners permit.

The number of lessons you will need will depend on which vehicle you plan to conduct your licence in.

Expected number of lessons (on average):

  • Heavy Rigid Synchromesh Manual (Restricted Licence) on average  8 hours are normally required to enable you to pass the practical assessment.
  • Heavy Rigid Road Ranger Manual (Unrestricted Licence) on average  8 hours are normally required to enable you to pass the practical assessment.

Syncromesh is a style of manual gearbox similar to driving a manual car (or single clutch movement) using an eight speed gearbox. Obtaining your HR licence in a Syncromesh gearbox will result in a Restricted HR Licence. (Restricted to auto and synchromesh)

Road Ranger is a style of manual gearbox that requires gears to be changed using a double de-clutching method in a 18 speed gearbox. Obtaining your HR licence in a Road Ranger gearbox will result in an Unrestricted HR Licence.

For Heavy Rigid (HR) class you will need to have held a C class Car Licence for a minimum of two years.

For Heavy Combination (HC) class you will need to have held a MR or HR licence for a minimum of one year.

For Multi Combination (MC) class you will need to have held a HR or HC licence for a minimum of one year.

MC cources are available in auto and road-ranger gearbox but if you hold an unrestricted HR or HC you will obtain an unrestricted MC however if you have a restricted HR or HC you will obtain the MC with the same restriction if you choose the auto gearbox.
