Product Details

Heavy Combination Licence (Open Road Ranger)

Lesson Fee: $165.00/hour

Obtaining a Heavy Combination (HC) licence allows you to drive a truck or prime mover towing one trailer above 9 tonne in weight. You must have held a MR or HR licence for at least 12 months to be eligible. Trucks in this category include truck, dogs and semi-trailers.

A Heavy Combination truck has two types of licences within the category and these are either non-restricted (Open ) or restricted (Condition B). Purple Truck Driving School currently offers both Open and Condition B or restricted, which covers you for all your truck driving needs. The difference between the two licences is the gearbox. The HR non-restricted licence is a road ranger or non-synchromesh gearbox.

Throughout the training you will cover:

• Road laws

• Pre-drive checks

• Starting and stopping sequences

• Demonstration drive

• City and highway driving

• Load security

• Cabin checks

• Defensive driving

• Turning and handling

• Vehicle positioning

• Fuel efficiency

• Systems of vehicle control

Pre-requisites for a HC Licence:

• You must have held an MR or HR licence open for at least 12 months

• As you currently hold an MR or HR licence, a written knowledge test is not required

• You must pass the on road practical driving test

• If you currently have a medical condition on your licence, you will need a relevant medical certificate

• NOTE: You are not permitted to upgrade to a HC licence while you hold a P1 car licence
