Commonly Ignored Multi-Combination Course Eligibility Requirements

A multi-combination (MC) vehicle has more than one trailer. It makes the vehicle challenging to operate for someone accustomed to a truck with only one trailer. However, getting an MC licence can open numerous work opportunities, particularly if you want to further your career. For instance, an MC licence qualifies you to drive B doubles, construction trucks, heavy haulage delivery trucks, and single semi-trailers. However, you must take an MC course and pass the theory and practical tests to get a licence. That said, every potential trainee must meet specific requirements to be eligible for an MC course. This article highlights some of the most ignored MC course eligibility requirements.

Category Eligible Approval

Australia is an attractive destination for expatriates seeking better opportunities, and commercial drivers make up a good number of this group. Typically, some expatriate drivers prefer their foreign licences when driving in Australia. However, since expatriate drivers must also take an MC driving course, they must seek approval from the government. The concerned government agency examines a foreign licence and determines your eligibility to train for an MC course. Suppose your overseas licence qualifies you to enrol for an MC course. In that case, the Australian government issues you an approval letter to file with a trade school of choice.

Medical Clearance 

Operating a heavy commercial vehicle with more than one trailer is not an easy feat. Moreover, a lot rides on a driver's ability to stay alert while using such machines. Thus, multi-combination vehicle operators must be healthy and fit to be eligible for an MC course. However, it does not mean that applicants with a medical condition cannot enrol for an MC course. Notably, you can participate in an MC course, but you must present a medical clearance from a responsible government agency. A medical form clears you to drive a heavy vehicle, making you eligible for an MC course.

English Proficiency

All government-recognised driving trade schools offer MC courses in English. Therefore, non-Australian applicants who want to take an MC course must assess their English language proficiency. The reason is that most government-recognised trade schools discourage applicants from heavily relying on interpreters. The last thing you want is to pay the tuition fee only to find that an MC course limits your interaction with interpreters. You can get more information from the trade school you plan to enrol for an MC course in Australia.
