What can you drive with HC License?

  • An HR Truck with a trailer attached that weighs more than 9t GVM
  • A prime mover with a trailer that weighs more than 9t GVM and more than 8t GVM
  • A specifically built vehicle with a trailer that weighs more than 9t and a tractor with more than 8t of gross vehicle weight
  • A tipper and dog truck and float trailer, or a sizeable rigid truck with a GVM greater than 15t and at least three axles and a trailer with a GVM greater than 9t.

Drivers who already possess a Medium or Heavy Rigid Drivers Licence and seek to increase their knowledge and skill set should enrol in this course. The ability to operate a semi-trailer, truck and dog and truck and pig combinations requires a Heavy Combination Licence.

Learning objectives:

  • Road law
  • Conducting cabin inspections
  • Doing pre-drive safety checks
  • Connecting and uncoupling a trailer
  • Beginning and Stopping order
  • Stop or park the trailer.
  • Handling and turning
  • Planning and reversing

Entry Requirements:

  • Participants must possess a valid driver’s licence.

  • Payment for the practical driving test
  • Completed the Brisbane Transport Road Rules test
  • Provide your essential identification document
  • Wear the proper clothing, including runners or fully enclosed shoes.

Excellent tips on this HC License:

  • A 90-minute class is frequently preferable to an hour-long one for pupils since it gives them more time to practise coupling and uncoupling the trailer, practise reversing, and driving around.
  • The highest class to which you can advance is the HC licence if you have an MR licence and have held it for at least a year.
  • You should consider going straight to an MC licence if you currently hold an HR licence and have at least 12 months of driving experience. This is because competency-based training is used to obtain an MC licence rather than taking the driving test through the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
  • In order to understand the fundamentals of double clutching before attaching the trailer, if you are upgrading to an Unconditional Licence, we utilise the truck without a trailer at first. You will only be billed at the HR rate.
  • Getting a Heavy Combination License may be an easy procedure if you already have an unrestricted MR or HR licence. You will receive an unconditional HC Licence and permission from the Department of Transport and Main Roads to tow the trailer with an automated truck. Since you currently possess this licence, there is no need to demonstrate a Road Ranger or Crash gearbox.

What happens on the test day procedure?

  • Meet a trainer for a one-hour warm-up session before the assessment.
  • Carry your licence
  • Getting to the testing location is necessary 20 minutes before test time.
  • Present your driver’s licence and the completed yellow application form to the transportation department.
  • Read the driving examiner’s message.
  • Take the test with the examiner.
  • Refrain from letting your nerves or the personality of the examiner divert you from the chore at hand, which is to drive safely and obtain your licence. The examiner is required to give clear and early directions while you are taking the driving test. Sometimes they will chat with you, and others may remain quiet.
  • After the test, the examiner will go through any mistakes and let you understand whether you passed or failed the test.
  • If you pass, the customer care centre will provide you with a new licence as the paperwork are finished.
  • If you fail, you will have to take another practical test.
  • Verify that any outstanding traffic fines have been paid.
