Heavy combination is available for you on the basis of two-hour training sessions or a course of training to suit your needs and your previous experience. The length of the Course of Training depends on the gearbox type that you choose: Automatic or Unrestricted Road Ranger gearbox types and your previous heavy vehicle experience.
Provided that your current driver’s licence shows Heavy Rigid unrestricted the Department of Transport will recognise your gearbox type rating when you pass your HC whilst using the Automatic gearbox type. Most people find it easier to meet the required standard during an assessment when driving the prime mover with the automatic gearbox type. The prime mover with the Road Ranger gearbox is available for you if you require it.

Nationally recognised Statement of Attainment is a document that all driver assessment candidates must hold so they can graduate on their Department of Transport driver assessment. To obtain the Statement of Attainment all enrolled students will need to complete their practical training and also do the theory training component. Our trainers will provide guidance on how to complete this training; it is easy once you know how!
Heavy rigid, heavy combination graduates must all satisfy the Nationally Recognised Training Package requirements and the Department of Transport competency standards requirements. The good news is your trainers will easily explain how the standards can be met. Wrightway Road Training personnel have been providing these services since 1992.
Unlike HR, HC, at the moment Medium Rigid practical driver assessments are still carried out by an Assessor provided by the Department of Transport. After medium rigid training our Trainer will go with you to Kelmscott Licensing Centre where you can use the truck that you have been trained in to do your driving test. Our Trainer will explain the competencies and provide you with opportunities to practice your MR truck driving to achieve the goal that you seek; which of course is to pass your test.
Whilst medium rigid is simply practical training followed by an MR driving test, acquiring a HR or HC required the candidate to obtain a Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment before doing a Department of Transport driving test.
The good news is tens of thousands of truck drivers have been helped by Wrightway Trainers to pass their truck test and no doubt during 2019 many more will be coached to successfully graduate with their truck licence!
