Trainee Requirements for this Course

  • You must hold a current Qld HR or HC licence
  • Whilst you can undertake MC Training at any time after obtaining a HR or HC Licence, The Department of Transport and Main Roads will not issue you with an MC Licence until you have held your HR or HC for a continuous period of 12 months
  • If you are upgrading from a HR licence you will be required to do an "in house" driving assessment in a HC vehicle before progressing on to the assessment
  • If you are upgrading from a HC licence but have not driven a HC for some time then you may require some refreshing training in a HC vehicle before progressing on to the MC Assessment
  • If you need to lift a gearbox restriction off your licence to obtain an open licence, then there maybe additional costs depending on your driving ability and how you progress through your training.

Course Booking Procedure

Please call and we will run through some questions with you on the phone to make sure the training chosen is suitable, or alternatively you can complete the course booking form attached and email to info@brisbanrdrivingschool.com.au

After the booking form has been processed, A 1 hour initial assessment lesson will be booked to check your current competency for the licence you hold and allow our Assessor the opportunity to tailor make a training plan for you, discuss any issues you may have, any gearbox restrictions that need to be lifted etc. This assessment lesson will be done approximately a week to 10 days before you commence your course.

We will issue a confirmation of your course enrolment and send your pre-course learning material together with the student hand book and code of practice (if requested). We will also take a deposit at this time.

The cost of your course does not include any extra training that may be needed to lift a gearbox restriction from your licence. If you only hold a HR or HC synchromesh licence (i.e. B restriction) meaning you have never been assessed in a crash box at HR or HC level, then if you do the MC in a synchro mesh gear box, you will get an MC licence with a B restriction. If you want an open MC you will have to be assessed (and trained if necessary) in a crash box. Brisbane Driving School can provide this training but it is an additional cost. This training will be charged at the current hourly for HR or HC non synchromesh training as required, in consultation with yourself as you progress through your course.
