MR Truck Licence

A MR (Medium Rigid) Licence covers any truck or bus with 2 axles with a GVM greater than 8 tonne.

The MR Truck licence can offer good job opportunities for removalists, tow trucks, buses and local freight deliveries.

You must have held a car licence for at least 1 year.

We offer medium rigid licence training in a Hino 500 Series with a 6 speed synchromesh gearbox and 5m tray or in a Hino Ranger with a 6 speed synchromesh gearbox and 6m tray

If you have a medical condition the code ‘M’ will be recorded on your licence. This means that when you drive you must carry a current medical certificate (this is detachable from your Medical Certificate for Motor Vehicle Driver form F3712) and drive in accordance with any stated conditions.

When upgrading to a higher class of licence, if you have a condition: M on your current licence you will need to visit your doctor to have the certificate updated to include the new class before you begin your training.

If you drive vehicles with a GVM of more than 8 tonnes, public passenger vehicles (for example buses, taxis or booked hire) or drive a vehicle that is licensed or required to be licensed to carry dangerous goods, you must meet the commercial vehicle driver medical standards in the Assessing Fitness to Drive publication.
