What is an LR Licence?

A LR Licence is your Light Rigid Licence. Its the first step above your car licence and allows you to drive slightly larger vehicles.

It is the cheapest and most affordable truck licence to get. However MR Licence is better value.

What Vehicles Can You Drive on an LR Licence?

  • A Light truck up to 8 t GVM.
  • A Small bus that isn’t more than 8t GVM or capable of carrying more than 12 people including the driver
  • Either of the above vehicles towing a trailer with a maximum weight of 9T GVM

Who Should Get An LR Licence?

  • Tradies – Who only need to drive a very small truck (Between 4.5t GVM and 8t GVM)
  • School Teachers – Who would like to drive the school bus for excursions
  • Tour Guides or Operators  – Who need to take guided tours or do airport transfers

What Jobs Require an LR Licence?

Most jobs that require an LR Licence do so as a part of many roles. For example some labourer and delivery jobs, minibus drivers for couriers and airport shuttles as well as some bus driver positions.

If you’re getting your heavy vehicle licence to increase your skills and get a new job we strongly suggest that you upgrade to an MR Licence instead. They are just as easy and affordable but provide far more flexibility in the vehicles you can drive. Click here for MR Licence.
