Training Course and Assessment

When you first meet with your driving instructor, they will complete a pre-assessment checklist, which will include identification verification and an eligibility check.

They will then confirm the course proceedings with you, explaining the required performance, discuss strategies surrounding driving techniques and may provide a demonstration.

You must bring your Learner's logbook as well as your current driver's licence.

Your assessment will be carried out against the criteria prescibed by the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS). Details of which can be found within the Guide to HVCBA, which would have been provided to you when you obtained your Learner's Logbook.

Opportunities for skill gap training and re-assessment (if required) is also provided.

Your completed assessment criteria will be recorded in your Learner's Logbook. Once you have completed all of the required assessment criteria, a Final Competency Assessment (FCA) is conducted.

Once completed successfully, you will be issued with a Certificate of Competency and provided feedback. The Certificate of Competency can then be taken to any RMS motor registry or Services NSW to gain your licence.

Learner's Logbook

Your CBA Learner’s Log Book shows your progress in building the skills required to upgrade to a heavy vehicle licence.

As you learn the required skills (called ‘criteria’), your progress is recorded in your Log Book. You must keep your Log Book until you’ve completed all your criteria and passed your Final Competency Assessment (FCA) or Competency Test (CT).

When you complete your assessment with RAISE Training, your assessor will keep your Log Book.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

RPL is facilitated by allowing a student to have an assessment conducted on them, without receiving prior training. Our Accreditation Agreement with the RMS requires that an assessment (as RMS define assessment) must occur in order for the student to receive a licence. A mechanism called a Competency Test (CT) can be used for a student to achieve RPL.

You should discuss this option with your nominated Driving Instructor.
