TLIC0033 Apply low risk heavy vehicle driving behaviours
TLIC0033 RTO Training Materials for this unit focus on the skills and knowledge needed to apply low-risk driving behaviours when operating a heavy vehicle. It includes adhering to relevant legislation for safe operation, inspecting vehicles and securing cargo for transportation, and applying low-risk driving strategies. This involves advanced skills in cognitive, technical, communication, and vehicle management, as well as hazard perception, risk control, and decision making. The unit applies to heavy vehicle drivers who operate with low-risk driving behaviours and requires a higher level of knowledge and skills beyond basic driver license requirements for a designated heavy vehicle class and driving situations. These behaviours are applied independently without supervision.
TLIC0033 RTO Training Materials are provided in Microsoft Word format making them easy to contextualise, add images to and edit them to suit your RTO’s requirements. They include:
- TLIC0033 Apply low risk heavy vehicle driving behaviours Learner Assessment
- TLIC0033 Apply low risk heavy vehicle driving behaviours Learner Guide
- TLIC0033 Apply low risk heavy vehicle driving behaviours Assessor Guide

Training Materials Excerpt:
Transportation drivers are trained to use advanced observation techniques to ensure safe and efficient delivery of goods. Here are some advanced observation techniques used:
- Scanning: Drivers use scanning techniques to observe the road ahead and identify potential hazards. This involves looking ahead and scanning from side to side to identify any potential hazards, such as other vehicles, pedestrians, or debris on the road.
- Use of mirrors: Drivers use mirrors to monitor the position of their vehicle on the road and the surrounding traffic. They use the mirrors to check for any blind spots, and to ensure that they are not in the way of other vehicles.
- Spatial awareness: Drivers use spatial awareness to monitor their position on the road and maintain a safe distance from other vehicles. This involves knowing the size and dimensions of their vehicle and understanding the space required to operate safely.
- Predictive driving: Drivers use predictive driving techniques to anticipate potential hazards and take evasive action to avoid accidents. This involves being aware of potential hazards and taking steps to avoid them before they become a problem.
- Use of technology: Drivers use advanced technology, such as GPS systems and onboard cameras, to monitor their surroundings and identify potential hazards. These technologies can help drivers to navigate unfamiliar roads and avoid accidents.
- Observing road conditions: Drivers use advanced observation techniques to monitor road conditions, such as weather, road surface conditions, and traffic flow. This can help drivers to adjust their driving style and maintain safe driving practices in different conditions.
- Constant monitoring: Drivers use constant monitoring techniques to ensure that they are always aware of their surroundings and any potential hazards. This involves paying close attention to the road, other drivers, and the vehicle’s condition to ensure that they are always operating safely.
Here are some examples of Australian road transport driving hazards and related low-risk driving techniques for each:
- Weather conditions: Weather conditions such as rain, fog, and strong winds can create hazardous driving conditions. Low-risk driving techniques for these conditions include reducing speed, increasing following distances, and using appropriate headlights and windscreen wipers.
- Fatigue: Fatigue is a major hazard for drivers, particularly those involved in long-haul transport. Low-risk driving techniques for fatigue include taking regular breaks, avoiding driving during periods of low alertness (such as late at night), and planning rest breaks in advance.
- Speeding: Speeding is a major cause of road accidents and can lead to serious injuries and fatalities. Low-risk driving techniques for speeding include obeying posted speed limits, adjusting speed to match road and weather conditions, and allowing extra travel time to avoid the need to rush.
- Distractions: Distractions such as mobile phones, navigation systems, and passenger conversations can divert a driver’s attention from the road and increase the risk of accidents. Low-risk driving techniques for distractions include using hands-free devices for phone calls, programming navigation systems before setting off, and limiting passenger conversations while driving.
- Road conditions: Poor road conditions, such as potholes, debris, and uneven surfaces, can create hazards for drivers. Low-risk driving techniques for road conditions include reducing speed, maintaining a safe following distance, and using caution when passing through construction zones.
- Aggressive driving: Aggressive driving behaviours such as tailgating, weaving between lanes, and cutting off other vehicles can increase the risk of accidents. Low-risk driving techniques for aggressive driving include remaining calm and patient, avoiding confrontations with other drivers, and allowing other drivers to merge or change lanes safely.
Low-risk driving techniques involve maintaining a safe speed, keeping a safe following distance, being aware of road and weather conditions, avoiding distractions, and remaining calm and patient while driving. By following these techniques, drivers can reduce the risk of accidents and arrive safely at their destination.
