NSW Ambulance Requirements

Our trainers are committed to helping NSW Ambulance candidates meet the LR (light rigid unrestricted) requirement contained in the letter of offer. We can usually schedule your training to comply with the time frame your letter suggests. Even if it means working on Public Holidays!

ABC Driving School (Western Suburbs) has been conducting LR Licence upgrades for candidates of the Ambulance Service of NSW, for many years and will be happy to assist you with a one-on-one course, at our Arndell Park training centre. If you have recently received your intake approval from the Ambulance Service of NSW, you will have also been notified that you will be required to upgrade your drivers licence to an unrestricted Light Rigid (LR) licence.

The course is conducted in one day, over seven and a half hours normally commencing at 7 am and concluding by 3 pm, with a compulsory 30-minute lunch break. The vehicle used for the course is a Toyota Commuter minibus. The cost of this course is $750 there are no other additional or hidden charges, we currently have over a 90% pass rate within the scheduled seven and a half hour time frame, however if you do require any additional lessons, these hours will be charged at $120.00 per hour.
