Dangerous Goods D Endorsement Test Course

Haul Dangerous Goods Safely: Earn Your D Endorsement with a Course and Test from Drivetime

Around the world, roads convey more cargo to its destination than any other method. Even with the huge amount of goods transported by air and sea, those goods must still reach individuals far from runways and ports. Not all these goods are as mundane as foodstuffs or consumer products either; in fact, some of them can be dangerous. From inert or flammable gases held under pressure to industrial chemicals, solvents, and more, many hazardous materials must still reach their destination. If you want to take on jobs transporting these items for pay, the law requires you to pass a D endorsement test.

Upon completion of a dangerous goods endorsement course, you'll receive a certificate that will allow you to add the new qualifications to your licence (government fees apply). Where can you take such a course, though? At Drivetime, we provide excellent instruction with flexible options. With each course taught by real, experienced drivers, you'll have the opportunity to gain valuable insight into safely transporting dangerous items. Before you can begin you'll need to meet a few basic prerequisites — not just anyone can load up cylinders of liquid nitrogen and hit the road.

What do you need to begin the D endorsement course?

To apply, you must be a holder of a current full New Zealand licence — restricted licences are not valid for this course. You must also be able to supply current documentation proving your identity. Once you submit evidence that these documents are in order, you can arrange for a D endorsement course and choose a date.

On the arranged day, arrive at the designated learning center for your booking. Consisting of Unit 16718, this course covers important information including relevant legislation related to dangerous goods transportation, identifying the types of hazards and their containers, and understanding documentation requirements. The unit details other important information on safely carrying dangerous items, including how to correctly display hazardous material placards.

By the end of the day, you should feel well equipped to take the test. With hard work in the course, you can pass and earn your endorsement. Drivetime's instructors work hard to ensure every participant develops the confidence necessary for the job.

When you meet the necessary prerequisites, and you want to expand your abilities to include a dangerous goods endorsement, take the test as soon as you are ready.
