    G'day.

    The answer is no im affaid, i had to retake my test for PSV anf HGV.

    You also have to have a full medical and police check.

    The licences are MR = ridged and HR = artic.

    PSV and LGV are the same licence here so if you got a bus licence you are can also drive a truck with upto 2 trailers long.

    If you wanna get into bus driving you will also have to get accreditation as well.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks. The OH had the opportunity to do the LGV for free before we left and we were debating whether to try and rush his medical and theory for it to get it before we go, but if it isn't valid over there, then there is no point.

     

    I saw one of your earlier post and was saying to him about the bus driving, the only things puts him of would be a less than perfect sense of direction, he would cope with this in a truck as could pull over check his A to Z but the bus would be a different story! Plus we are on a 475 visa, does that rule him out for the buses?

    Sorry you cant do busses on a 475 you need a pr visa.

    I would tell OH to contact a few companys first as most of them want PR visa or aussie citizen.

    no mate they wont. i think you have to take a refresher and its not LGV its MR which means Medium Rigid and HR which Means Heavy Rigid. I have been here 11 years and i had to retake my LGV licence again. It took 2 lessons and then the test hope this helps you.
