Main Road Training is here to offer full training and licensing to help you obtain your heavy vehicle license. We also offer ongoing support if you wish to further your career in the transport industry.

All vehicles are supplied in the heavy vehicle courses.

Main Road Training works one on one to offer you better training to start your career in transport.

Do the NZTA approved course at Main Road Training and cut out the learner licence period.

In our approved Class 5 truck course we will include a logbook unit standard (unless you can prove you have sat it with an NZTA approved provider within the last twelve months and we are happy with your current standard), and the Class 5 unit standard which consists of both theory and practical.

Once you have completed the approved course you will be given a certificate. You must take this to an NZTA licensing agent (VTNZ or AA) and have it put on your licence. The certificate is not a valid Class 5 truck licence.
