Light Rigid (LR) Licence Training & Assessment

TLILIC2014 – Licence To Drive a Light Rigid Vehicle

In order to obtain any Heavy Vehicle Licence in NSW, it is the law that you complete a Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment (HVCBA) with an Accredited Training Provider.

At Core Driving School we are accredited to provide all aspects of theory and practical training and assessment to ensure you obtain your licence as soon as possible. We have extensive experience in training and assessing for LR licences and recently updated our LR bus used for running the course. Our LR Licence course is frequently attended by those wishing to join NSW Ambulance so that they are able to safely operate these vehicles.

800+ 5 Star Reviews

this shows a truck driving career
Step 1 of 3
Lr licene lr truck licence lr bus licence
Small trucks with a gross vehicle mass up to 8 tonnes.
Any towed trailer must not weigh more than 9 tonnes
Buses that seat more than 12 adults (including the driver) up to 8 tonnes.

The Light Rigid Licence course is run in two parts. Firstly with a trainer who will guide you through each skill required in the assessment and then the assessor. It can generally be completed in one day unless a student requires a little more time working on a particular skill. At Core Driving School it is our goal to ensure all students are equipped with all the necessary skills required to pass their assessment with confidence.

Under AQF/HVCBA, drivers are assessed against specific criteria relating to the safe operation of heavy vehicles. The assessment is then conducted under a range of conditions. The assessor must be accredited by the Transport for NSW and meet requirement under AQF/HVCBA, so that your training and assessment are conducted by different assessors. At Core Driving School we look after this for you and ensure that the assessor that delivers your training will not be the same assessor that conducts your Final Competency Assessment.

LR Truck Licence - Get It Right Away from The Accredited Core Driving School

When trying to obtain an LR Truck Licence and if you live in Australia, you should know that it is mandatory to complete a Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment (HVCBA) with an Accredited Training Provider to get any Heavy Vehicle Licence in NSW.

We are accredited to teach all parts of theoretical and practical instruction and testing at Core Driving School in Australia to guarantee you get your license as quickly as possible. We have a lot of experience training and testing for LR licenses, and the LR bus that we use to deliver the course was recently renovated. Those desiring to join NSW Ambulance and properly drive these vehicles commonly take our LR Licence training.

We provide our services in New South Wales, including Sydney, Penrith, Campbelltown, Newcastle, Central Coast, Wollongong.

COVID-19

We have precautions to safeguard both our students and staff from the coronavirus during these challenging times. We strictly adhere to the Australian Department of Health’s recommendations and implement the most vital personal grooming precautions in our automobiles, buses, and workplaces.

By having our administration staff work from home, we can keep our non-training workers to a minimum. Program lengths have also been controlled to guarantee that each participant has at least 4 square meters of the training area.

Every one of our students has been told that they must reapply if they:

  • Have recently returned from a trip abroad
  • In the last 14 days, you’ve interacted with a diagnosed COVID-19 case.
  • In the previous 14 days, you’ve been instructed to separate yourself.
  • Headache, congestion, nasal congestion, breathlessness, or other respiratory disease are common symptoms that require reapplication.

Have you visited any COVID-19 hotspots during the dates and times shown on the health.gov.au website?

HOW TO GET A LIGHT RIGID TRUCK LICENCE?

To be eligible to attend the LR Licence course you must;

Have held a class C licence (except a Learner licence) or equivalent for one year or more.

Please note that any time spent on a P1 licence counts towards the year total however you are unable to practice on an LR vehicle or obtain an LR licence until you hold a P2 or full class C licence.

In order to attend a Light Rigid Licence course you must first attend a Service NSW office in person and;

LIGHT RIGID LICENCE COURSE PRE-REQUISITES

Provide a Completed Licence Application Form
Provide acceptable proof of idnetity
Pass an eyesight test
Provide a medical report (If applicable)
Pass the LR knowledge test
Pay the appropriate fee

You will then be issued with a Heavy Vehicle HVCBA Learner’s Log Book and a copy of the Guide to Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment. The guide will provide you with all the necessary information required regarding what tasks you need to complete in the training and your final assessment. All progress is recorded in your log book which shows your progress in developing the skills required to upgrade your licence. It is important that you keep your Log Book until you have passed your final assessment.

Once you have successfully completed your Final Competency Assessment you simply attend an Service NSW centre to be issued with your upgraded licence.

We offer all our courses in the Sydney, Penrith, Campbelltown, Newcastle, Central Coast and Wollongong regions. We offer flexible training hours, including early morning and in the afternoons to fit with your schedule. If you meet appropriate criteria and wish to obtain your Light Rigid Licence, please call us on 1800 00 CORE or book online to ensure your place in our next LR course.

Very professional family run business. Elda, Isaac and staff trainer's/assessors make it a friendly yet very informative experience. Trainer Frank was a very good communicator and had effective way of training from his extensive experience. I highly recommended Core Training courses and look forward to sending future drivers there.12 months later I have upgraded to HC liscence Road Ranger. Isaac and Elda were very supportive of me and didn't let me give up on RR even though I failed test. They were very accommodating and rebooked test at short notice to allow me another chance. Isaac gave up his time to give me additional training guidance and advice which I really appreciated. I highly recommended Core Training and will be sending all my future drivers here for training.

This place is the best in Sydney. They are very professional and genuinely want you to exceed to be the best driver you can be. Even after getting my road ranger and now my MC license they still have given me on going support when i needed it and they are the reason i have my dream job and i will be forever grateful for that! The trucks are well maintained and all trainers are of the highest standard. I send everyone i know here and they have had the same experience. Once you join the core driving school family you can’t wait to come back to upgrade your license to the next level.

Couldn’t recommend enough if you’re going for your HR road ranger licence.Edit: Came back a year later to upgrade to MC (takes 2 days as you do HC 1 day, then MC the next), I had Ty as my instructor and Isaak did my assessment. Once again unreal tutorship with Ty giving me clear, concise instructions and awesome tips and tricks on the big step up. Isaak, professional as always doing my assessment. AGAIN, couldn't recommend enough!! Thank you to the whole team!! I'll see you on the highway!!

Core Truck Driving School is definitely the school to choose. The great experience starts from the moment they receive your call. Elda greets you with a friendly, informative attitude and guides you from A to Z. The moment they received me at 6:00 am the serious training began. We were given clear instructions and expectations of the day and the course (Issac). Yes, a lot to learn in one day, it was intense, but inclusive. I did my HR training- with one experienced instructor (Bill), sat for the test, was evaluated by another experienced instructor (Frank), and passed my HR driving test all on the same day.Their professional attitude from start to finish was absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend them for any license, they know what they are doing.

The whole day could be summed up in similar circumstances to this. Everyone was welcoming, the service was impeccable, the training was amazing, and everyone I came into contact with went out of their way to help in any way possible. Top job!

I highly recommend this driving school.From making my booking to doing my assessment I can’t fault my experience one bit.The team at Core Driving School are absolute legends.I learnt what was needed and more, they corrected bad habits and gave me the foundation needed to correctly and safely operate a Heavy Combination Vehicle. (Pass my HC 1st go).I’m proud to now be apart of the family at Core Driving School and will be back to upgrade my license.Thanks again to the whole team, keep up the good work guys.Shout out to Elda, Isaak, Ty, and Billy.

Heavy Vehicle Knowledge Test & Driver Manuals

Summary of the Light Rigid (LR) Course

After completing this relevant educational program, learners will be eligible to get their Light Rigid Truck/Bus license. The training and testing process usually takes one day.

A Rigid Light license permits the bearer to operate rigid equipment with two axles and a gross vehicle mass (GVW) of up to 8 tonnes, such as a truck or a bus with more than 12 passengers, along with the driver. It also permits the bearer to tow a trailer with a maximum gross weight of 9 tonnes.

What is a Light Rigid Licence (Class LR)?

Vehicles with a Class LR Licence in NSW include Vehicles with a gross vehicle weight of greater than 4.5 tonnes but less than 8 tonnes. Furthermore, any towed trailer shall not exceed 9 tonnes GVM. Any vehicle with a gross vehicle mass (GVW) of less than 8 tonnes transports more than 12 persons, including the driver.

It also covers Class C automobiles.

What vehicles will I be able to drive with an LR license?

The Light Rigid license is the next step after a driver’s license. Once you get this license category, you will be allowed to drive a range of vehicles, including trucks with a GVM of up to 8 tons, 14-seat minibuses, and 25-seat minibuses. To operate an ambulance, members of the ambulance crew must also have an LR Licence. An LR license is also required for some modest mobile homes.

The training takes place in a minibus and is quite simple to complete, with a high success rate. For this type of license, we provide a one-day course.

RIGID LIGHT COURSE

We recognise that everyone has varying experience and can tailor our courses to meet your needs.

Aim:

Designed to help drivers gain the skills, knowledge, and attitude they need to get a Light Rigid driver’s license.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ENTRY:

All pupils are required to: –

  • Have had a Class C driver’s license for at least one year (not including a learner’s permit).
  • Answer all the Roads & Maritime Services (RMS) written exam.
  • Acquire a learner’s manual and logbook for the Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment (HVCBA).
  • Before beginning training, read the HVCBA manual

Contents Of the LR Course:

  • Criteria 1 – Pre-operational Check
  • Criteria 2 – Drills in the Cabin
  • Criteria 3 – Begin, move off, shut down and protect
  • Criteria 4 – Steering Management
  • Criteria 5 – Gears Management
  • Criteria 6 – Brake Management
  • Criteria 7 – Accelerator Control
  • Criteria 8 – Establish and Maintain a Collision Avoidance Zone
  • Criteria 9 – Safeguard Crash Avoidance Areas
  • Criteria 10 – Guidelines and Rules of the Road
  • Criteria 11-Reversing
  • Criteria 12 – Stop/Start on a Hill
  • Criteria 13 – Managing the Burden
  • Criteria 14– Procedure for Bus Stops (If the course is conducted in a bus only)

Final competency assessment (FCA) for the LR Course

Firstly, the Course Content must be attended, which includes the above-mentioned requirements. You will be taught and evaluated against these standards, and after you have met them, you will be “signed off.” Once you’ve finished the education course, you’ll need to take the Last Competency Assessment, which is a professional practical driving test that will be recorded as part of the RMS mandate. After having completed the FCA and meeting the requisite standard of proficiency, you will be granted a certificate, which the RMS will use to grant your LR permit.

Heavy Vehicle Knowledge Test for LR Truck Licence

LR Truck Licence

The knowledge exam tests your understanding of both general road laws and rules specific to heavy trucks.

You must first pass a knowledge exam on heavy vehicle traffic regulations before you can:

  • Complete HVCBA and apply for a Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment Learner’s Logbook.
  • Make an appointment for a heavy vehicle driving exam.

If you’re learning how to drive, you can decide to drive right away with your present licence; but, before scheduling a road test or acquiring an HVCB, you must complete the heavy truck road laws knowledge test.

Who is the LR Licence course for?

You will want to know for whom is this course intended?

Any individual who intends to operate a rigid truck with two axles and a GVM of up to 8 tonnes must have a Light Rigid (LR) licence. It’s also a prerequisite for anyone who wants to operate a bus with more than 12 passengers, including the driver, and a GVM of up to 8 tonnes.

Basic Info Concerning the LR License

Vehicles with two axles and a gross vehicle mass (GVM) of 4.5 to 8 tonnes are classified as Light Rigid vehicles. It also covers vehicles with a GVM of up to 8 tonnes that accommodate more than 12 persons, such as the operator. An LR permit holder may additionally tow a trailer weighing no more than nine (9) tonnes GVM. An LR licence possessor is also legally permitted to drive all licence classes underneath it (car), with the exception of motorbikes.

Before beginning training and testing for a Light Rigid Truck/Bus licence, an applicant must first:

  • Have held a class C (excluding learner’s permit) or analogous certificate for at least one (1) year. Note that any time spent on a P1 licence qualifies, but you won’t be able to practise driving an LR car or convert to an LR licence until you have a P2 or full class C licence.
  • Take the LR proficiency test and master it.
  • Pass a vision exam

An individual may register for a Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Evaluation Learners Logbook after passing the vision and information examinations, and then proceed to the programme of study to get an LR licence.
