To prepare for your test you can buy the Victorian Bus and Truck Drivers handbook available from Ace Assessment & Training Services, VicRoads online or Customer Service Centres, RACV offices, and some newsagents and bookshops. (Not required for Heavy Combination courses).
To obtain a heavy vehicle endorsement you must be at least 18 years of age and hold a current Victorian driver licence for a minimum period of time. There are five categories of heavy vehicle endorsements. The category you are eligible for will depend on how long you have held your car driver licence and, for some categories, how long you have held a heavy vehicle endorsement in a lower category.
Your eligibility will be checked with Vic Roads prior to confirming your place in a course. If you are not eligible we will contact you for further information.
To find out more about heavy vehicle categories and eligibility criteria, refer to individual Licence categories or click on the publications link from the services menu.
