In addition to being licensed for all LR and MR class vehicles, HR licence holders can legally drive a heavy vehicle with 3 or more axles and a GVM greater than 8 tonnes. You may also tow a trailer as long as the GVM of the trailer does not exceed 8999kg. Once the trailer exceeds 9 tonne GVM, you must hold a HC or higher class licence. This includes articulated buses.
