Upgrading to HC Heavy Combination Licence

If you are a current truck licence holder looking to upgrade, you must have had your MR Medium Rigid licence or HR Heavy Rigid licence for a minimum of 12 months. You must have held your licence for this amount of time within the last 5 years before applying. This length of time may be continuous or made up of a number of individual lengths of time.

We have pre arranged tests with Queensland Transport.

What your HC Heavy Combination Licence Training allows you to drive

The Queensland Department of Main Roads and Transport laws allow you to drive

  • A class HR vehicle
  • A truck (more than 8t GVM) with a trailer of more than 9t GVM
  • A prime mover (more than 8t GVM) with a trailer of more than 9t GVM (semitrailer)
  • A specially constructed vehicle, including a tractor (more than 8t GVM with more than 2 axles), with a trailer of more than 9t GVM

The GVM is the maximum weight that a truck can carry including its own weight. This is the maximum or total weight of a loaded rigid vehicle (including body, payload, fuel and driver). It is a figure set by the manufacturer and is lodged with registration authorities and governs all applications and is stamped on the compliance plate of the vehicle (also referred to as GVW or Gross Vehicle Weight).
