Medium Rigid licence is one of the most commonly used licence upgrades. It covers a variety of trucks and buses. Completing the course will give you a class MR licence which will allow you to drive automatic and synchromesh manual vehicles.
There will be a "condition B" on the licence which means you will be able to drive trucks with automatic and synchromesh gearbox, however, you will not be able to drive Class MR vehicles with a Road ranger/Crash gearbox (double clutching method), this will not be a disadvantage as it is extremely rare to find a MR vehicle with a Road ranger/Crash gearbox, these gearboxes are normally found in higher class vehicles such as HR, HC and MC as the vast majority of class MR vehicles have automatic and synchromesh manual gearboxes.
