ASSESSMENT: Drivers are trained and assessed against the RMS requirements for Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment (HVCBA) as well as the requirements specified in the TLI10 Transport and Logistics Training Package by accredited assessors. First of all the Training Course must be completed which consists of the 13 criteria listed above. You will be trained and assessed on these criteria, when you are up to standard they will be "signed off". Once the Training course is completed you will be required to sit the Final Competency Assessment, which is a final drive that will be video recorded as an RMS requirement. After the FCA has been completed successfully and the required standard of competency has been achieved you will be issued with a certification which the RMS will then use to issue you the appropriate class HC licence.
