Private Vehicle Assessment

Can I use my own vehicle to be assessed or tested?

Yes. You can learn and be assessed or tested in your own vehicle, as long as it is registered and roadworthy and meets the following vehicle and load requirements:

Vehicle Requirements:

The vehicle that you use for HVCBA must be the right type for the class of licence for which you are applying. If you are applying for a heavy rigid (HR) or heavy combination (HC) licence, there are additional minimum standards for vehicles which can be used. For more information, see the Heavy Vehicle Drivers' Handbook.

Load requirements:

All heavy vehicles (except buses) presented for the heavy vehicle driving test must be loaded to at least 75 per cent of the maximum mass allowable for the vehicle to be driven on public roads. This is at least 75 per cent of either the "legal mass limit", Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) for rigid vehicles or Gross Combination Mass (GCM) for articulated or heavy trailer combinations, whichever is the lowest. There must be a lap-sash retractable seatbelt fitted to the front passenger seat of the vehicle for the testing officer (MR and HR buses excepted).
The following vehicles must not be used for a driving test:

Armoured security vehicles, vehicles carrying dangerous goods, federal interstate registered vehicles, vehicles carrying livestock, buses carrying passengers.

For further information see: A Guide to Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment.

Heavy vehicle licence conditions:

If you undertake HVCBA in a heavy vehicle fitted with an automatic or synchromesh gearbox, a condition will be added to your licence which will only allow you to drive heavy vehicles with a similar transmission.To have the condition removed, you need to pass a shortened version of Roads and Maritime Services (replacing Roads and Traffic Authority) test in a vehicle fitted with a constant mesh gearbox or a HVCBA Competency Test with an RMS accredited RTO provider. Liam will meet the client at the depot where the the vehicle is garaged or in the following areas: Central Coast , Hunter , Newcastle and Sydney.

Client requirements:

The client must have completed the Knowledge test  at the Roads & Maritime Services(RMS) for the the required licence or vehicle required and completed an eye test at the RMS. Client must also have purchased a competency based Log book from the RMS.

For further information, see A Guide to Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment.
