ONE DAY COURSE

We now offer a One Day HR (Heavy Rigid) Licence Course which results in a licence being issued with a condition ‘B’. This states that the driver is allowed to drive synchromesh or automatic transmission. This means that you can complete the training and assessment in an automatic truck and you will be entitled to drive a synchromesh gearbox as well. (Synchromesh means manual like a normal car). It will not restrict or limit your ability to drive MR, LR or class C vehicles.

The HR Licence with a condition B is common in the industry today. Many haulage companies have replaced their older model trucks with automatics as they have greater fuel efficiency over long distances and reduce driver fatigue. If you find at a later date that you do require the Constantmesh entitlement then you simply need to undertake a short Çondition B Removal test.

This course (or the MR course) is ideal for clients wishing to enter the bus driving industry and can be combined with our Bus Driver Authority course. Inter-State coach companies require the HR licence and coaches are all automatic!

TWO DAY COURSE

Completing our HR (Heavy Rigid) Licence course using a truck with a Constantmesh or Roadranger gearbox will result in you getting an ‘open’ licence. With this licence you can drive LR, MR and HR trucks with automatic, synchromesh or constantmesh gearboxes. YOU MUST HAVE CURRENT MANUAL CAR EXPERIENCE.

This course is usually undertaken by clients who wish to transport dangerous goods (flammable liquids) or will be working with older vehicles that still have this gearbox type. Please note this type of gearbox is now considered old technology so consider if the extra cost is worth it for you. Given that most modern fleets are automatic. the one day course would meet your needs. Remember, if you do find at a later date that you require the Constantmesh entitlement then you can undertake a Condition B Removal test.
