Course Overview

The Operate Commercial Vehicle course teaches the skills and knowledge required to maintain the safety of and to operate, a commercial vehicle across a variety of job roles. 

It includes monitoring traffic and associated equipment, managing vehicle condition and performance, and effectively managing hazardous situations.

Driving must be carried out in accordance with relevant state/territory roads and traffic authority licence requirements and regulations.

Driving is performed with limited supervision, and with duty of care responsibility for self and others in achieving the prescribed outcomes.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements are applicable to this unit. Provisional car licence must be held prior to commencement of this unit of competency.



This unit of competency (TLIC1051 Operate Commercial Vehicle) can be used as either core or elective units within many nationally endorsed qualifications.
