You need a heavy vehicle licence to drive heavy vehicles such as trucks, trailers, buses and heavy forklifts. In New Zealand we have four licence classes for heavy vehicles – and you must have the right licence for the type and weight of vehicle you want to drive. In some cases you’ll also need special endorsements.
