Please add an extra $66.00 if you wish to undertake your Licence in a Day on a Saturday (to cover Department of Transport and Main Roads additional fee for a Saturday test booking. The current TMR fee for a Saturday driving test is $123.00 For the class of LR it is only an extra $14 as Saturday test booking fee for LR is $67).

Outline of Process:

1 Hour Assessment Lesson (not always necessary if student is using a MR or HR vehicle with an automatic gearbox) usually done about 7-10 days before your “Licence in a Day”, just to check there are no major problems with your driving and that it is an obtainable goal of undertaking your truck licence in a day. This Lesson can be done anywhere between the hours of 6 am – 5 pm Monday Saturday.

After this we book a driving test for you at a time convenient to you and then all of your practical driver training is done on the same day culminating in your practical driving test. Department of Transport and Main Roads Test a weekday TMR test booking fee is included in the cost.

Heavy Vehicle Learners Questions to be undertaken at Department of Transport and Main Roads prior to practical driving test at a cost of $20.80. This fee is paid direct to Department of Transport and Main Roads. You can practice the questions on the internet but you physically have to go to a Department of Transport and Main Roads customer service centre to undertake the real thing.

TIP : If you want to undertake condensed training for your HR open (non-synchro gearbox) Licence, please talk to us. Although the Licence in a day option is not available for this licence class (unless you have a lot or prior experience) we can certainly arrange a condensed training course over a 3-7 day period, which works much better when learning how to use a road ranger / crash gearbox.

Timelines:

START TIME IF AN ASSESSMENT LESSON WAS NOT PREVIOUSY CONDUCTED
(Primarily MR or HR vehicle that has an automatic gearbox)
START TIME WHERE ASSESSMENT LESSON WAS PREVIOUSLY CONDUCTED BEFORE HAND
(where MR / HR vehicle has a synchromesh gearbox or for the class of HC)

TEST TIME

Start at 6 am Start at 7 am 11.10 am
Start at 8 am Start at 9 am 1.10 pm
Start at 9.45 am Start at 10.45 am 2.50 pm

 

HC Licence In A Day

For holders of an unconditional MR or HR Licence, HC in a day can be a relatively simple process. Department of Transport and Main Roads permit you to use an automatic truck to tow the trailer and you will end up with an unconditional HC Licence. Demonstration of Road Ranger / Crash gearbox is not necessary as you already hold this licence.

If the MR or HR Licence that you already hold has a B condition on it, you can still undertake your licence in a day but you will end up with a HC with Condition B (synchromesh / automatic gearbox only). If this is the Licence that you need to do the job that you want – great, if not you may need to talk to us about doing your lessons in a HR with a non-synchro gearbox to lift all the restrictions and end up with a HC open.

If the MR or HR Licence that you already hold has an A condition on it, you can still undertake your licence in a day but you will end up with a HCA (automatic gearbox only), which obviously can be quite restrictive.

TIP : If you want to undertake condensed training for your HC open (non-synchro gearbox) Licence, please talk to us. Although the Licence in a day option is not available for this licence class (unless you have a lot or prior experience) we can certainly arrange a condensed training course over a 3-7 day period, which works much better when learning how to use a road ranger / crash gearbox.
