"D" Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road - Renewal

Why do a Transport of Dangerous Goods course with TR Driver Training?

  • This course renews your knowledge and skills required to safely and legally transport Dangerous Goods by the road.

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.

Course Venue

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


  • If your endorsement expired more than 12 months ago, you will need to complete a full initial D Endormsment assesment.
  • Takes approximately 2 to 3 hours and covers theory only.

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.
