Nationally Accredited Industry Licence Courses

Is This The Right Licence Course For You?

Taking the first steps into the Road Transport Industry can be difficult. Standard heavy vehicle licensing courses are not sufficient in meeting the needs of the Road Transport industry. As a result, employers of heavy vehicle drivers are generally unable to hire new entrant drivers without having to put that new entrant driver through extensive work place training at their cost in order to bridge the skills gap between the level of driving skill and knowledge obtained by a new entrant driver during a standard heavy vehicle licensing course and the level of driving skill and knowledge that the employer actually requires in their work place.

Although the Road Transport Industry needs many new drivers in the years ahead to keep up with projected transport needs, new entrant drivers will not only need to have a great attitude and be customer focused, they will also need to highly skilled in all aspects of heavy vehicle driving and be able to demonstrate to their prospective employer during an on-the-job driving assessment that they have the high level driving skills and knowledge required to be able to operate a heavy vehicle in a safe and competent manner at all times in any type of driving environment that a professional driver would be exposed to on a daily basis.

Learning and applying high-level heavy vehicle driving skills and techniques takes time. Armstrongs' Nationally Accredited Industry Licence Courses are designed to provide students with the necessary amount of time-behind-the-wheel training required to obtain the capacity to drive a heavy vehicle in safe and competent manner at a level required by the Road Transport Industry.
