Pilot Vehicle Driver Training Course Perth

The movement of oversized and over massed loads is a critical part of the Transport Industry in Western Australia.  To ensure the safe movement of these loads, we need certified Heavy Vehicle Pilots.

The Miro Training Centre runs a 20 hour course for you to get your Pilot Licence.  The first two days focuses on the theory you need to know and understand to ensure large and heavy loads are securely moved.  The last day is spent on the road, where you do practical training and an assessment.  During the course you will undergo Bridge supervision

To enroll in our course, you will need to hold a current non-probationary Motor Drivers Licence.  In addition to this, we recommend you should have good mobility (ability to use both arms), be physically fit and have good numeracy and literacy skills.

At the end of the course, you will be presented with a certificate with the following units

TLIB0002 Carry out vehicle inspection
