Do you need to attend a Dangerous Goods course?

If you’re transporting dangerous goods, then you will need to have a dangerous goods (D) endorsement on your driver licence. 

This course is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills required to transport and handle dangerous goods both legally and safely and covers Unit Standard 16718. If you hold a valid Class 1 New Zealand Car Licence (Learner, Restricted or Full) then you are eligible to sit this course.

We hold regular Community Classes in Hamilton, which we welcome you to attend, or we can arrange an on-site course that is tailored to your needs.
