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

C.I.T.S. provides Heavy Rigid Courses in vehicles with non synchromesh gear boxes, ensuring the learner can then go on to drive any Heavy Rigid vehicle or lower with no restrictions following course completion. C.I.T.S. can also provide training in vehicles with a synchromesh/auto shift gearbox, however students will have a “B” restriction placed on their licence which only allows the driver to operate vehicles with a synchromesh gearbox.
