Haul Truck/Dump Truck RIIMPO311A

Training and Assessment for the Haul Truck Licence: Brisbane and Gold Coast


Haul trucks (also known as a dump trucks) are off-highway vehicle designed for use in mining and large-scale construction applications. They can include diesel-electric, diesel-mechanical, articulated, belly dump, and rigid body, and their capacities can range from 36 tonnes to 363 tonnes.

Heavy duty machinery requires a high level of competency to operate safely. ABC Driving School can provide formal and informal dump truck driver training in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, to help beginners gain the skill and confidence they need to use the truck effectively. We can also provide training to help drivers with existing experience attain a dump truck licence.

As part of our RII training and competencies services, one of our qualified instructors can help to increase your job opportunities in the mining, resource and construction industries. We offer both onsite and offsite lessons, with all necessary materials provided.

Because the training is competency based, it can be easily tailored to suit a range of experience levels. The time it takes to obtain a haul or dump truck licence will depend on your existing experience.

As one of the leading truck driving schools in Brisbane, we offer a comprehensive program that covers both theory and practical elements. In order to be deemed competent in operating this machinery, you will be required to complete:

  • Formal training with an instructor
  • A Training Plan with tasks that can be practiced either on our site or at your place of work
  • A theory exam
  • Assessment from one of our trainers/assessors

Upon successful completion of the above, you will receive your Statement of Attainment and licence (with photo ID). Both of these are nationally recognised.
