Located 23 minutes from downtown Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast and just 50 minutes from Brisbane CBD, our purpose-built state of the art training facility at Arundel offers heavy vehicle and truck driver training and practical testing / assessment services for a wide selection of heavy vehicles. Contact The Driving School for further information on our heavy vehicle driver training for MC, HC and HR driving licences/tickets. We also offer MR and LR licences.
We have a large fleet of air-conditioned vehicles, to offer you the option of training with different gearbox types (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 of our qualified instructors have industry experience and, therefore, our truck driver training is industry-relative — we focus on all the factors involved in qualifying and working as a heavy vehicle driver as opposed to the idiosyncrasies of a particular gearbox.
