To get a start with your heavy vehicle licence you will need to have held a car (Class C) licence for at least a year for an LR or MR then pass the relevant knowledge test. If you want to jump straight to an HR licence then you must have held your car licence for at least 2 years. You can practice on this website for your truck knowledge test
