Medium Rigid Truck

    TLILIC2015B – Medium Rigid Licence

    Training in for your Medium Rigid B licence (MRB) will prepare you for driving manual (synchromesh one clutch movement as in a manual car) and an automatic gearbox truck as well.

    Generally people will have to participate in 6 to 8 lessons, plus a warm up drive and test. There is no minimum or a maximum number of lessons, as we always make sure that you participate in as many, or as little lessons you need, to make sure you are test ready.

    QUICK TIP: If you already hold a manual car licence, regardless if you take your lessons and test in an automatic or the manual MR, you will end up with the same licence, which is a MRB license. What this means is that you can drive any MR truck with a synchromesh or automatic gearbox. The reason for this is that you have already previously demonstrated during a past driving test that you can use a vehicle with a synchromesh gearbox and for test purposes you do not have to demonstrate that skill again.


    All MR truck licence training participants in must:

    • Hold a current NSW Drivers Licence for a minimum of 2 years (including Green P’s) or have held a Light Rigid truck licence for 12 months
    • Be competent in the use of a manual transmission Complete the RTA MR knowledge test and obtain a Competency Based Assessment (CBA) learners logbook and guidebook
    • Have read and understood the CBA guidebook prior to commencement of the course
