Heavy Rigid LicenceWe provide both full day training courses and hourly lessons so you can choose which best fits your time frame.

The typical HR Practical Driving Test takes around 70 minutes. You will be driving the exact same vehicle for your test that you drove for your lessons. This ensures you are totally familiar with the truck and gives you a better chance of getting your licence on your first attempt.
