Basic Overview of Heavy Rigid vehicle type
More than 8 Ton GVM (must be more than 2 axles) plus trailer (Max 9 Ton GVM) as well as extensive training towards your licence test. Ideal Driving School will show you professional truck driving techniques.

Basic requirements
Queensland Transport requires that the student has held a car licence for at least two years (2 years) or a Light Rigid or Medium Rigid licence for one year (1 year).

How it works

Ideal Driving School conducts one hour lessons and training is competency based. Once the student is competent with their driver licence training a practical driving test with Queensland Transport can be booked. The student will complete the test in the same training vehicle with the Queensland Transport examiner.

Lesson Times
Ideal Driving School conducts lessons Monday-Friday 7am-5pm and also on Saturdays from 7am. All Saturday lessons are required to be pre-paid. We suggest that students do one lesson per week or even a two hour block, depending on their availability and budget.

Lessons required to attain a licence.
On average the number of lessons for a person who has never had truck driving experience (a raw beginner) is approximately 7-8 plus an hour for the test. This is for the hire of the truck for one hour whilst undertaking the Queensland Transport test.

Scott from Ideal Driving School is an outstanding instructor who provides high-quality training and instruction. His extensive knowledge, patience, and personalised approach make him an exceptional choice for anyone seeking to become a confident and responsible driver of Heavy Rigid trucks. I wholeheartedly recommend Scott to anyone looking for a top-notch driving instructor who prioritizes safety, skill development, and a positive learning experience.

Ideal Driving School and Scott have exceeded my expectations, and I am grateful for the knowledge and skills I gained under his tutelage for me to confidently pass my Heavy Rigid driving test.
