The Best Course for Light Rigid Licence

Licence to Operate a Light Rigid Vehicle

What will a LR Licence allow me to drive?

Light Rigid licence is the next stage up from a car licence. Once this licence class is achieved you will be able to drive a variety of vehicles like trucks up to 8 tonne GVM, 14 seats mini buses, 25 seats mini-buses. Members of the ambulance service also require a LR Licence to drive an ambulance. Some small motor homes will also require a LR licence.

The course is conducted in a mini bus and is relatively easy to achieve with a high success rate. We have a one-day course available for this class of licence.

Class LR Licence vehicles in NSW include:
– Any motor vehicle more than 4.5 tonnes GVM but no more than 8 tonnes GVM 
– Any towed trailer must not weigh more than 9 tonnes GVM.
– Any vehicle with a GVM of no more than 8 tonnes which carries more than 12 adults including the driver.
