Heavy Rigid – Double Clutch – Unrestricted Licence

With an open class HR Driving Licence. You have the option to investigate new possibilities. You can drive a Heavy Vehicle with three or more axles and a gross vehicle mass of more than 8000 kg with this permission.

For seamless gear changes, the “open class” licence requires expertise with the Road Ranger gearbox as well as a “double-clutching” method.

Heavy Rigid – Single Clutch – Restricted Licence

The HR-B licence allows the holder to operate HR automobiles with automatic or synchromesh transmissions.

While not as difficult as the Road Ranger, the HR-B licence gives up a wide range of job opportunities.

Many transportation businesses do not require drivers to have an open class or B Class HR licence. There are numerous job options in the field of bus and coach driving, which simply requires an automatic licence to work as a truck driver.

HR Licence allows you to operate Heavy Rigid vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Mass of more than 8 tonnes (no axle limit) +/- trailer (max 9 tonnes Gross Vehicle Mass).

Our approved assessors conduct all HR exams on-site.

If you have an interstate or international driver’s licence, please contact the Department of Transportation to receive a Learners’ Permit or to transfer your interstate driver’s licence to a WA driver’s licence.
