Types of Truck Training in Melbourne

COVE Training offers the truck licence training you are looking for in Melbourne. We provide training for the Medium Rigid truck license, commonly referred to as MR truck licence training.

We also offer Heavy Rigid truck licence Synchromesh and Non-Synchromesh training. The terms “synchromesh” and “non-synchromesh” refer to the type of transmission or gearbox in the truck. A synchromesh gearbox ensures that the drive gears are synchronised and turn at the same speed when a gear is engaged. This is a much easier gearbox to operate than the non-synchromesh gearbox. In a non-synchromesh gearbox, the operator must utilise a certain level of skill to ensure the drive gears and the transmission gears turn at roughly the same speed.

Non-synchromesh gearboxes are often used in heavy equipment as the softer components in a synchromesh gearbox tend to wear more quickly and are far less durable than the non-synchromesh type. As an aside, motorcycles typically use a non-synchromesh gearbox, as the forces in the gearbox are much less than other vehicles, allowing the gears to mesh into place on their own without a problem.

We also offer training for a Heavy combination truck licence – synchromesh.

The MR truck licence training in Melbourne is a one-day course for experienced drivers and a one-and-a-half-day course for drivers with little or no experience.
