Light Rigid – LR Truck Training

Need Light Rigid (LR) Truck Licence Training? Want to drive a vehicle in the Light Rigid Truck Class?

This course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to drive a Light Rigid Truck and obtain a LR Truck Driver’s Licence to drive a small delivery truck, van, tipper, special purpose vehicle or bus designed to carry 13 or more seated persons.

Getting a Light Rigid – LR Truck Licence

Follow these steps to upgrade your current driver’s licence to drive a Light Rigid Truck.

Step 1. Check the licence class specifications and the minimum driving experience requirements for the licence you need below.

Step 2. If you hold a current driver’s licence and meet the minimum driving experience requirements for the desired licence class, you can drive a motor vehicle of that class without a learner’s permit – but only under learner’s permit conditions and laws. If you meet the minimum driving experience requirements you can now book and pay for driving lessons here.

Format: LR Truck driver training is delivered on a one-to-one basis as separate sessions. You can undertake LR truck driver training using the Competency Based Training (CBT) logbook method of training and assessment, or through lessons followed by a Vehicle On Road Test (VORT).
