Dangerous Goods Endorsement

This course is for anyone who handles or transports any dangerous goods, e.g. fuel and chemicals, by road in New Zealand and needs a D Endorsement. To get the endorsement, you need to complete this course and take your course certificate provided by IVS Training to a licensing agent (VTNZ, AA) to have it added to your licence and pay the additional fee directly.
