Competency Based Training | Heavy Vehicle Licences

Competency Based Assessment (CBA)

The primary method to get a heavy vehicle licence is to complete a Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment (CBA) with an accredited training provider, particularly in the Sydney, Central Coast, Illawarra and Newcastle regions.

What is CBA?

CBA provides the flexibility for you to choose your own trainer. You can also learn and be assessed in a vehicle of your choice, and arrange your own appointment times with your trainer.

Under CBA, you'll be assessed under a wide range of driving conditions by an assessor who has been accredited by the Roads and Maritime Services(RMS). If you pass, you can go to a registry or service centre to be issued with your upgraded licence.

Important: CBA may not be available in all areas of NSW. In these areas, you can take a heavy vehicle driving test with a Roads and Maritime testing officer.

Applying for CBA

If you choose to obtain your licence through CBA, you'll need to go to a

registry or service centre in person


  • You will need to complete
  • Licence Application form (PDF, 315Kb).
  • You will also need to provide acceptable
  • proof of identity,
  • Pass an eyesight test (unless exempt)
  • Pass the knowledge test for the class of licence you want to get.
  • The participation fee will also need to be paid.

You'll then be issued with a


Heavy Vehicle CBA Learner's Log Book, and the Guide to Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment publication.

The Guide outlines the requirements to pass the assessments, as well as the tasks you need to perform to complete each criteria. Your progress is recorded in your log book.
