HR class of licence is done driving a Ford Aeromax Prime Mover with an approved detachable body and 3 axles. This vehicle has an 18-speed transmission, double clutch which is non-synchromesh. The reason this type of vehicle is used is because the more difficult transmission gives the student an unrestricted licence in that class and to master this type of vehicle makes you a more capable, aware driver, with increased job opportunities.
