Licence to Operate a Heavy Combination Vehicle


What will a HC Licence allow me to drive?
Holding a Heavy Combination Licence makes you eligible for the most in demand truck Licence Jobs. In addition to this, you are also able to work as a LR, MR or HR Truck Driver.
These jobs are usually High Paying Truck Driving Jobs that will have you working either local or interstate, sometimes you will even have the option to work both!

Can you go from a MR to HC licence?
YES. You must have held both a Car (C class) licence for at least 3 years, and a Medium Rigid (MR class) or HR class licence for at least 1 year.

Class HC Licence vehicles in NSW include:
- Articulated vehicles with three or more axles.
- Heavy rigid vehicle trailer combinations including unladen dolly, with three or more axles.
- Any towed trailer with a GVM more than nine tonnes.

Entry requirements:
- Have held a class MR or HR licence or equivalent for one year or more. Any time you've  
  spent on a P2 MR or HR licence counts, but you can't practice to drive an HC vehicle, or
  upgrade to an HC licence until you hold a full class MR or HR licence.
