How To Get Your HC Truck Licence And Keep it
Recently more than 250 truck drivers in QLD and 300 drivers in WA, had their MC or HC truck licence revoked after the state’s Transport and Main Roads found that they weren’t assessed as per the required standard. It’s vital for any person wanting to drive a heavy combination vehicle to make sure that the registered training organisation (RTO) will train and test your competency to drive a heavy vehicle is done to the correct standard. If you attempt to take short cuts or use an RTO who’s willing to cut corners you could suffer the same fate.

The HC Truck Licence is at the top end
The HC truck licence is at the top of the heavy vehicle licence pyramid. Heavy combination (HC) licences cover even larger, longer and more difficult to drive vehicles. These classes typically encompass movers with particularly long and heavy semi-trailers (or multiple semi-trailers connected together). You might need to start with a HR Licence to gain some valuable skills and experience before you move up to a heavy combination vehicle.
Generally HC trucks require a special type of driver to do the job. These drivers will enjoy driving for long periods at a time on their own. They often have to spend lots of time away from family and need to be able to accept that loneliness is a part of the job.
