About the HC Licence Course

  • Any type of articulated truck with three or more axles including unladen dolly
  • A Prime mover with one semi-trailer
  • HR vehicle towing a single trailer with a GVM greater than 9 tonnes

What sets us apart from other heavy vehicle driving schools is the fact that we rely on an all-round, hands-on approach. Upon the completion of our course, you will be confident that you have practised driving in a range of real-life situations. Being experienced drivers of heavy vehicles themselves, our certified HC licence NWS instructors have been through it all. They are your local experts who are familiar with some of the most common challenges that heavy vehicle drivers encounter in the area and will teach you how to overcome each of them.
