To reduce the WA shortage of truck drivers, the expanded Heavy Vehicle Driving Operations Skill Set will commence in Term 4, in the South-West at South Regional TAFE. This follows four months of a pilot program in Perth. Successful participants obtain a Heavy Rigid (HR), Heavy Combination (HC) or Multi Combination (MC) vehicle licence and may apply for a forklift (LF) licence. The course is free for eligible students and the Practical Driving Instruction Training, assessment and licencing costs are $500 for concession students and up to $1,250 for non-concession students.
