Learning Resources & Theory Assessment

RIIVEH201D Operate light vehicle

This unit describes a participant’s skills and knowledge required to operate a light vehicle in the Resources and Infrastructure Industries.

This unit is appropriate for those working in operational roles.


Your assessment must be completed in one sitting. If you close your assessment prior to completion you will have to start again. You cannot pick up from where you left off.

If you complete your assessment successfully you will receive a copy of your results by email. If you do not complete your assessment successfully you can download a second attempt word document from your resources folder in the top lef-hand courner of your results page. You will then need to complete a ‘SECOND ATTEMPT’  of your assessment.

Only attempt to correctly answer the questions that you failed in your first attempt. You do not have to complete all the questions – only the questions that you did not answer  correctly in your first attempt. It is important that you email your SECOND  ATTEMPT to the correct email address so that your assessment attempt can be matched and verified as complete.


Licensing, legislative, regulatory and certification requirements that apply to this unit can vary between states, territories, and Industry sectors.  Relevant information must be sourced prior to application of the unit.

Note: The terms Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) and Work Health and Safety (WHS) are equivalent and generally either can be used in the workplace. In jurisdictions where the National Model WHS Legislation has not been implemented RTOs are advised to contextualise the unit of competency by referring to the existing State/Territory OHS legislative requirements.
