The MC truck licence allows you to drive trucks carrying more than one trailer. If you will be driving any of the following vehicles, you must hold an MC licence:
Prime movers, low loader dolly and low loader trailer combinations
Some people opt to obtain their HC licence first, before later upgrading to the MC licence. The MC licence training course is slightly more rigorous and requires confidence, focus and clear demonstration of ability from all students.
Requirements to obtain MC Licence
You must meet the following requirements in order to apply for your MC licence:
You must have held a Class HR or HC licence or equivalent for a minimum of one year. Time spent on a P2 HR licence counts, but you cannot practice to drive an MC vehicle or upgrade to an MC licence until you hold a full class HR or LC licence.
You must pass an RMS MC knowledge test
You must pass an RMS eyesight test
