Understanding Your Licence

The Car / Truck Licence you currently hold, the truck licence you want to obtain, and the vehicle that you are using to undertake your practical driving test will all have an effect on each other when making a decision on what heavy vehicle licence you want to end up with. At this time you also need to consider if you have any gearbox restrictions on your licence that you want to lift i.e. B condition, etc.

Eligibility

Before commencing your training ensure that you are eligible to obtain the licence that you want to eg. You have held your licence for the prerequisite time, plus you have no current suspensions or problems with your licence.
• LR or MR, you must have held an open or provisional car licence for a continuous period of 12 months
• HR, you must have held an open or provisional car licence for a continuous period of 2 years or more.
• HC, must have held a MR or HR Licence for a continuous period of 12 months.
• MC must have held HR or HC for a continuous period of 12 months.
• PILOT, must hold valid C class licence
Eligibility can be affected by loss of licence, outstanding fines and medical conditions.
If you have recently moved here from Interstate and changed your licence over to a Western Australian Licence, the Department of Transport and Main Roads may have transferred your licence across without transferring your driving history. Therefore, when it comes time for us to book your practical driving test, it will appear on the computerised booking system that you have not held a licence for the required length of time to be eligible to undertake the practical driving test.
This is not a problem – providing there are no actual issues with your licence, it is simply an administrative process. It is just a matter of you authorising the Department of Transport and Main Roads. After this has been done, we will be able to book in your test.

Medical Conditions

If you hold a drivers licence from a different state, you are required to report any long term or permanent medical condition, or any change to an existing medical condition, which is likely to adversely affect your ability to drive safely to the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
Sometimes you may have a medical condition that does not affect the class of licence that you currently hold but it may be relative to the licence that you want to obtain. You do not want to complete a course of training for a road ranger gearbox only to find out that you are not eligible due to a medical condition. If you have any concerns whatsoever about a medical condition that you have such as diabetes, epilepsy etc. we advise that you speak with your doctor or directly with someone at The Department of Transport and Main Roads.
