News:  New licensing system for Rigid classes LR, MR and HR

From March 1 2019, MVR has made changes to the process of assessment for light, medium and heavy rigid vehicle classes.  These changes align the licence upgrade system across the classes, increasing accountability of Driving Examiners for their assessment decisions.   The main changes are all licence upgrade tests will be video recorded and stored for MVR auditing purposes, and all tests will be conducted on an MVR approved assessment route.  Licence upgrade courses at NATA are now expanded to incorporate a separate theory Intake day of four hours and a full day booking for practical training and assessment.  Be aware that if you are driving a manual vehicle it is your responsibility to understand the role and management of a vehicle's gearbox, our trainers can train you to operate a truck gearbox, it is not their job to teach you how a car gearbox operates.

Update your load restraint knowledge with TLIA1001 Secure Load or TLID2004 Load and Unload Cargo, both now available for bookings. The new Load Restraint Guide (PDF) can be found here
