GOLD COAST AND BRISBANE’S LEADING HEAVY VEHICLE AND TRUCK LICENCE CENTRE
The Driving School provides a comprehensive range of heavy vehicle driving lessons, one-day courses and condensed training courses for all types of heavy vehicle licences.
Whether your goal is to advance in the transport industry or you just want to travel around Australia in a motorhome, our flexible truck driver training options cover all classes of heavy vehicle licences in Queensland and New South Wales, including HC, HR, LR, MC and MR drivers licences. The Driving School has been in the business of heavy vehicle instruction since 1999, and is recognised as a Government-approved Registered Training Organisation (RTO No: 32261).
Located just 50 minutes from Brisbane CBD and 23 minutes from downtown Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, our purpose-built training facility at Arundel offers truck driver training and assessment services for all types of heavy vehicles. In some cases we can come to your place of business for group training.
For training purposes, we have a large fleet of vehicles with different types of gearboxes (automatic, synchromesh and non-synchromesh, commonly known as a roadranger or crashbox). This means we can offer you the best and most economical way to get your truck licence as quickly as possible.
All our instructors have industry-relative experience and our truck driver training is industry relative. We focus on all the factors involved in being a Heavy Vehicle Driver as opposed to the idiosyncrasies of particular gearbox.
- We are a fully accredited RTO

- 8 plus trucks in the fleet
- Open Mon – Sat ( + Sunday on request)
