Heavy vehicle tests

 

You must learn the class-specific questions as well as the general road rules, so don't just practice class 2 or class 3-5, work through all sections or take random tests. Selecting the class 2 button below means you won't be asked any class 3-5 questions, and vice versa.

The question modules cover the Road Code knowledge you need to know to take either a class 2 or class 3-5 theory test for heavy vehicles. Take the mock tests until you're getting 100% every time and then you're ready to take the real test.

For a truck licence you will need to choose whether you are learning for class 2 or class 3-5.
