HGV licence. Is it transferable?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

As the question above. Does anyone know? Have been trying to find out, but can't seem to come up with any info, other than that for car licences.

 

Thanks

I really dont think you should need to re-test, surly it is like a standard car license.

 

I believe it really depends upon the state you move to as to whether you need to re-take your car test. But the majority seem to just transfer your UK one to Oz one. i am like you, have an HGV, plus Motorbike so i would hate to have to re-take all of them.

Not sure about other states but here in NSW hubby was told he would have to do his test again.I also had a fully loaded licence and when I changed it over I only got car and bike.

My NZ HT license, and a few other things i.e. dangerous goods .... was all transferred to my Victorian license.

 

That was 5 years ago, I would imagine an up to date answer is on the road transport authority, or other government, web site somewhere.

Only car and motor bike are transferable, anything else has to be retaken.

Silly me, i should have realised i thought if you can transfer a car then common sense said you should be the same with an HGV. That is where i failed, common sense and immigration dont seem to go together

Looked into this in Vic, NSW & the ACT and only car & motorcycle will transfer - also you can't just go straight to C+E (artics) as they make you work your way through the classes but in the ACT at least if you can show a current licence they will allow you to skip straight to the test for the equivelent class.
