LR – Light Rigid Truck Licence

Obtaining your LR truck licence is necessary in order to drive small buses, such as a minibus for schools and nursing homes, community buses, motorhomes and courier trucks. It can also apply to those wishing to join the NSW Ambulance Service.

An LR licence enables you to drive:

  • Small trucks with a gross vehicle mass (GVM) of up to 8 tonnes.
  • Buses seating more than 12 adults (including driver) with a GVM up to 8 tonnes
  • If you are towing a trailer, it must not weigh more than 9 tonnes GVM

Requirements to Obtain LR Licence

In order to apply for your LR licence, you must meet the following requirements.

  • You must have held a class C licence for at least 1 year. Learner licence is not included, but if you hold a green P licence this is acceptable.
  • Pass the RMS LR knowledge test
  • Pass an RMS eyesight test

Once you have fulfilled these requirements, you can contact Dames Driving School to book your Light Rigid Truck Licence training. Our courses are government approved and nationally recognised, and we assess you against RMS NSW criteria.
