If you hold a current interstate licence you will need to check with your relevant authority as to how you go about upgrading your licence. You can still undergo our training course under the HVCBA. If successful you will receive a certificate of competency which you will have to present to your state road authority along with your licence to have the upgrade endorsed. Remember the certificate of competency is NOT a licence to drive.
