We recognise that you need to work inside a budget. When paying for lessons by the hour…who knows how much it may end up costing? We can therefore offer a fixed price course followed by the final assessment. This would take place over a 1, 2 or three day period depending on class of licence and course ‘intensity’.

Train without pressure and be sure of your assessment day with a course.

MR/LR COURSE. $850.00:  1 day course including final assessment (Nominal 6 hours 1 hour free in this package!) NSW RTA require minimum 5 hours training and assessment for this licence course.

If it is necessary to repeat the final assessment, up to $250.00 fee may be applicable again.

BEST VALUE – TAKE THE FAST TRACK TO TRUCK DRIVING

The Heavy Rigid (HR) unrestricted truck licence gives you the widest options available when entering the commercial driving world. Once trained and assessed by us as competent on HR (NSW On-road driving test with the RTA (RMS) NOT required this way) you are then able to drive ALL of the following:

– LR Light Rigid
– MR Medium rigid
– HR(B) Heavy Rigid (Synchromesh or Automatic gearbox only)
– HR Heavy Rigid Unrestricted (can include a trailer no heavier than 9 tonnes)

It does not take much longer (or cost much more) than doing lower level licences (See table below). IN FACT – if you do one level at a time, costs can often be higher due to a lot of repetition.

TRUCK DRIVING CAREERS

Looking for a job in the transport or mining industry?

Search for truck driving and transport jobs in Australia on any major job seeker site, and you will usually find a significant number of truck jobs. Big Rigs weekly is also a great magazine for truck driving jobs listings.

We offer both MR (Medium rigid – Synchro box) and HR (Heavy Rigid – Unrestricted) truck training and assessment. HR is more demanding, but if you are starting from a normal car licence (held for 2 years) the HR licence enables you to drive the greatest range of vehicles possible on one licence type.

If you were a transport manager, would you prefer to employ someone who only has this licence or that licence, or someone who has ‘the lot’?

We also include some training in load restraint (Ropes, Straps & Chains), and Log book completion. After one year with the HR you can move up to a “multi” (IE Semi-trailer then Road Train/B Double).

TESTIMONIALS

“I, Ryan, recently undertook my HR truck license with Paul at Budget Driver Training.
I have already referred him and his business to multiple close acquaintances of mine and I will not hesitate to put his business name out there in the future. Paul had great patience with me and was very flexible with my time and needs.

As for pricing it was the best and cheapest value for money I could find on the Tweed Coast.

Budget Driver Training also presented themselves and their equipment in a neat and tidy manner.

I also felt safe at all times with Paul during the training and testing.”

Sincerely, Ryan, Tweed Heads

“Well thought out course. Experienced trainer with a friendly and professional manner.
I would advise anyone to call Paul as their first preference in driver training.”

Jai.
