HC (Heavy Combination) Synchromesh trucks are fitted with Synchromesh gearboxes. This gearbox type is common in later model (less than 10 years old) HC licence class vehicles and is similar to driving a manual car. You will also be able to drive automatic HC vehicles with this licence upgrade. Please note that licences acquired using vehicles that are fitted with a Synchromesh or Automatic gearbox will be endorsed with a “condition B” restriction - (may only drive Automatic or Synchromesh gearbox).
