GETTING YOUR CLASS 2 LICENCE WITH DRIVE RIGHT
Q.: Have you had your Full Class 1 (car) Licence for at least 6 months?
YES - great, please see the next question below.
NO - sorry, you must wait until you have - it is a requirement to move onto the next step
Q.: Do you have your Class 2 Learner's Licence?
YES - great, please contact us and we can book you into a course now. Please read more about
the course below and then give us a call.
NO - you need to get this before you sit a course with us, please contact us for more information about the requirements for the medical certificate and learner licence.
Q.: Do you want to get your Class 2 Licence the SLOW WAY or the FAST WAY?
THE SLOW WAY is to learn to drive with a supervisor for six months (must always have a
supervisor present to drive) and then take a suitable heavy vehicle with you to a licensing agency
(e.g. AA or VTNZ) and sit a Full Class 2 Licence Test with a testing officer. If this is
your preferred option please call 0800 822 422 for more information .
Note: A supervisor is someone who has held the appropriate class of Full licence for what they are
supervising (in this case their Full Class 2 Licence) for at least two years.
THE FAST WAY
Drive Right's Approved Course covers the skills necessary to drive the vehicle safely, as well as the
law related to Class 2 vehicles, work time, fatigue, and log books.
Our course has three main steps:
-1- Study the guide books and complete the pre-course self-test sections
-2- Sit the two theory sessions with an instructor
-3- Practical training and assessment with an instructor
The benefits of Drive Right's Course:
- Eliminates the six month waiting period usually required on a Class 2 Learner Licence
- Includes a strong theory base, including how to use your driver's log book
- Includes practical training with a qualified instructor
- Includes the loading of NZQA Unit Standards (24089 and 17574)
- Drive Right provides a Class 2 Vehicle for your practical training and assessment, up to 3 hours
drive time with an instructor in a Drive Right Class 2 vehicle is included in the course cost, made up of
approximately 2 hours training and 1 hour for practical assessment (further training available at
an additional cost if required.)
- Drive Right's Class 2 Vehicles are kept on location at 14 Broken Hill Road, Kenepuru, Porirua
The course is spread over at least three sessions, consisting
of two theory sessions and at least one practical session. On successful completion of the course, the instructor
will issue you with a certificate which you present at a licensing agency, and on payment of an
application fee to the agency ($39.80) they put the Class 2 Full onto your Licence.
