Default Knowlegde test for trucks

I've got a job with H and R and im flying over in a few weeks. Im doing all my research into the rules of the road and driving hours, etc but cant work out if you have to take a knowledge test for trucks or is it just for cars? Ive found loads for cars but none for trucks. Can any one help please and if there is knowledge test for trucks point me in the right direction seen as though i cant find it! Thanks.

Any company worth its salt should provide you with all the study books you will need. Both the Rules of the Road and the Air Brake.

You'll get your car licence as it part of the Canada-UK exchange scheme, but you'll have to sit the professional drivers theory test at the local agency!

Did your employer not provide you with a " Starter Pack" explaining every thing that you need to do and organize ????
