Written Knowledge Test

  • You can start your truck driving lessons before you do your learner’s questions
  • If you already hold any class of truck licence (an HC, HR, LR, MC or MR licence) and are upgrading, you do not have to do a written knowledge test, just a practical driving test.

    • Buy a copy of Your Keys to Driving in Queensland booklet (Learners Questions/Answers) $13.30 from us or any newsagency. Or
    • You can practice online here
  • The Driving Examiners prefer that you have completed your learner questions before you undertake your driving test, however, you are permitted to do them after the practical driving test
  • A heavy vehicle licence will not be issued until both the theory questions and the practical driving test are both recorded as a successful outcome on TMR’s computer system

Whilst you’re at the Department of Transport and Main Roads, take the time to check your driving history or tenure with a Customer Services Advisor. It’s important to make sure you are eligible to undertake the truck drivers licence you are applying for, particularly if you have incurred a recent disqualification for driving or you are worried about a medical condition. Due to the Privacy Act, we cannot do this for you.
