D Endorsement Course Renewal

Course Aim

The aim of this course is to:

  • To provide drivers with the facility to renew their 'D' endorsement for another 5 years.

Full and Renewal

  • The course is available as a “Full” course for first time trainees and a “Renewal” for those renewing their “D”.
  • Dangerous Goods “D” Licence endorsements are valid for 5 years and must be renewed within 60 months of expiry.


  • Covers Driver Licence “D” Endorsement.  You must present a current NZ licence with a "D" endorsement recorded that has expired by no more than 60 months
  • Takes approximately 2 to 3 hours and covers theory only – there is no practical.

Course Venue

We can complete training at one of our nationwide training facilities or at your own site.

What happens when I pass the course?

  • Take the certificate we give you to a licensing agency (e.g. AA, VTNZ or VINZ) and apply for a D Endorsement (Fees apply). 
  • YOU MUST present this within 60 days - otherwise you will have to pay for and re-sit the course again

IMPORTANT: You cannot drive with just the certificate - it is not a licence.
