Medium Rigid Licence - MR Truck Licencing


Licence to Operate a Medium Rigid Vehicle


What will a MR Licence allow me to drive?

Designed for drivers who wish to upgrade from a C class or an LR – Light Rigid licence. Participants develop the necessary skills, knowledge and attitude to obtain a MR – Medium Rigid heavy vehicle truck licence with a synchromesh manual or automatic transmission, through competency based assessment (CBA) with experienced trainers accredited by the RMS.

Class MR Licence vehicles in NSW include:
– Trucks and buses with a GVM more than eight tonnes and two axles
– Any towed trailer must not weigh more than nine tonnes GVM.

Entry requirements:
– Have held a class C licence, (except a learner licence) or equivalent for one year or more. Any time you’ve spent on a P1 licence counts, but you can’t practice to drive an MR vehicle, or upgrade to an MR licence until you hold a P2 or full class C licence
– Participants must have completed the MR – Medium Rigid knowledge test and obtained a CBA learner logbook and guide book.
– Pass an eyesight test
