This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to drive a heavy rigid vehicle safely, in compliance with relevant state/territory roads and traffic authority licence requirements and regulations for heavy rigid vehicles.
It includes maintaining systematic and efficient control of all vehicle functions, monitoring traffic and road conditions, managing vehicle condition and performance and effectively managing hazardous situations.

Upon successful completion, the student is then eligible for RMS to conduct an authorised practical driving assessment on behalf of the Department of Transport leading to an upgrade of your existing licence class to HR (Heavy Rigid).
The HR Unrestricted course is conducted in 3 Stages:
  1. Pre-requisite Information Session (online approx 2hrs )
  2. 8 hrs Training commencing with a 4 hr intro block and then 2 x 2 hr blocks  Monday - Friday

At the completion of your training, you will be issued with a Statement of Attainment certificate which is nationally recognised and completes one of the units of competency which contributes to a Certificate III in Driving Operations. 

Stage 1 of your training will require you to complete an online information session prior to you commencing your Training block.
This session will take you about 2 hours and will assist you to understand the truck you will be learning in as well as giving you important safety information prior to commencing your practical training session. You will be issued a login at the time of booking your course which will give you instant access to start this. 

Stage 2 of your training will require you to attend RMS where you complete a short information session with your instructor support followed by a written questionaire.  You will then proceed to complete your practical training in the truck.
On completion of your practical training, you will be required to complete a final questionaire before proceeding to your test.

Stage 3 Once you have passed the practical requirement for the course you are eligible to sit the DOT licence test which is completed in house with an RMS assessor who is accredited with the Department of Transport.

A heavy vehicle licence has the potential to open up a range of opportunities in the Mining, Civil and Transport Industries and RMS are happy to give you our industry experience by sharing our knowledge of what companies are looking for in a heavy vehicle driver’s.
To do this, firstly we believe that currency of equipment is paramount. This means that you need to learn and be familiar with vehicles that are currently being used in the industry by the industry leaders.
RMS prides itself on providing a modern fleet of industry-accepted electronic equipped trucks for you to train in. With state of the art Euro 5 zero-emission trucks our commitment to the environment can also be noted.
Our fleet consists of late-model Hino and Isuzu trucks with various gearbox configurations which you will experience making a more thorough training experience and contributing to you being more adaptable when it comes to your job searching. We like to make sure that our customers stand out from the rest!

The industry, is seeing more and more Automatic trucks coming into the marketplace which will see more opportunities present themselves as time goes on.  Currently, the Automatic licence is generally acceptable for most Bus driving positions and Mining Haul Trucks, however, checking company requirements is always recommended before making a decision.

Our experience has shown us that on average people tend to take a certain number of hours to get to a satisfactory level of being able to pass their driving test first time. Anything under often may result in a less than adequate result. Currently, RMS has a 94% pass rate.

For obvious reasons, the Automatic licence is generally the quickest and the cheapest with the unrestricted manual taking much longer but giving you more coverage of what you are authorised to drive.  As a general guide to achieve practical competency or test readiness for the Automatic is usually approx 4hrs practical tuition.  Competency for the restricted Manual truck is usually around 8hrs however with the unrestricted manual be aware results are very individual and some students cope much better than others.  For this reason please be sure that this is the truck licence you need as if not test ready at the completion of 8hrs you may require extra training.
In pursuit of giving you varied exposure and a stress-free introduction to truck driving your first lesson is always conducted in a restricted vehicle.  This allows you to focus on those areas of safety, size of the vehicle, cabin controls, road positioning and pre-starts without having to be distracted by trying to navigate a gearbox you are not familiar with.

If you are really serious about opening doors for yourself take our advice and years of experience and don’t short-change yourself. Remember it’s your opportunity, not anyone else’s, so spend your money wisely.

RMS regularly offer special promotions and discounts so always check to see what we have on offer to assist you.
RMS can also offer funding opportunities to eligible students for Heavy Vehicle training. To see if you meet the criteria give us a call and we can discuss further.
