The charge is "Fail to use lower beam - oncoming". The "commercial vehicle" at the end simply is referring to what you're friend was driving, not the type of oncoming traffic. Commercial vehicles are subject to higher fines then regular vehicles ($240 vs $110) but the demerit points are the same. For this particular charge it would be 2 points.

Remember though that the charge for commercial motor vehicles also carries CVOR points - I believe it's 1 for this offence.
