MR – Medium Rigid Truck Licence

If you wish to drive any of the following vehicles, you are required to hold a MR licence.

  • Rigid motor vehicles with a GVM of more than 8 tonnes
  • Any towed trailer must not weigh more than 9 tonnes GVM

One of the most common reasons for obtaining an MR licence is to become a bus driver, courier or medium haulage driver.

Requirements to Obtain MR Licence

You must meet the following criteria in order to apply for your MR licence.

  • You must have held a class C licence for at least 1 year. Learner licence does not count, but any time you spent holding a P1 licence does. However, you cannot practice driving an MR vehicle or upgrade to the MR licence until you hold a P2 or full class C licence.
  • Pass the RMS MR knowledge test
  • Pass an RMS eyesight test
