Non Synchromesh / Synchromesh Gear Box

Courses provide learners with the knowledge and skills required to pass the VicRoads Heavy Combination Licence endorsement test.

C.I.T.S. provides Heavy Combination Courses in vehicles with non synchromesh gear boxes, ensuring the learner can then go on to drive any Heavy Combination vehicle or lower with no restrictions following course completion. C.I.T.S. can also provide training in vehicles with a synchromesh gearbox, however students who do not already hold a HR Non Synchro licence will have a "B" restriction which only allows the driver to operate vehicles with a synchromesh/auto shift gearbox. If the students already holds a HR Non Synchro licence they can do the training in a synchromesh vehicle with no restrictions placed on their final licence endorsement.
