Medium Rigid (MR) Licence

Need an MR licence?

We are a RMS approved RTO and Sydney based provider of Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment (HVCBA). A medium rigid (MR) licence allows drivers to drive any 2 axle rigid vehicle, including a truck or bus and may tow a trailer of no more than 9 tonnes GVM (and within GCM limits). You can also drive a special purpose vehicle with a GVM of less than 15 tonnes (e.g. tractor or bob-tail prime mover).


To enrol in the Medium Rigid (MR) licence training course, all participants must:

  • Have held a Class C licence (not a learner) for at least one year
  • Complete the Roads and Maritime Service Rigid knowledge test and obtain a Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment (HVCBA) guidebook and logbook

Course Duration

Drivers upgrading to the MR licence receive up to 8 hours of training and assessment time, for the initial course fee. If additional time is required for an applicant to reach a competent standard, a discounted rate will apply.
