How to Obtain a Category C Truck Licence
If you plan to drive a Truck in Category C professionally (as part of your job), you need to do the following BEFORE you apply to the RSA for a Bus Driving or Practical test:
1. Category C Driver Theory Test
You must pass the Category C Truck Driver Theory Test before you can apply to a Motor Taxation Office (MTO) for a Category C Learner Permit. See DTT section for more information and to book your test.
