This toolkit's 'infocards' contain important information for commercial road transport drivers and operators. The cards can be printed and used in the workplace. New infocards will be added as they are developed.
TORO (transport organisation register online) enables transport service licence (TSL) holders to:
Before this information is accessed, TORO users must get the written consent of their drivers.
TORO services are free of charge.
More information on TORO can be found here .
A TORO pack can be sent to any TSL holder wishing to join TORO. Send your email and postal address details to email@example.com.
TORO provides a higher level of information than driver check. Information about driver licence restrictions, passenger endorsement expiry and demerit points are not provided to driver check users.
TSL holders can transfer to TORO. Send your email and postal address details to firstname.lastname@example.org noting that you are a current driver check user and wish to transfer to TORO.
Note: Transferring users must obtain a new consent form for every driver they want to add to their TORO operator list - even if they've previously obtained the driver's consent for driver check.
There is no legal requirement for you to give consent to your employer to access your information via TORO. If you do not wish to provide your consent, please talk to your employer about any alternatives.
Your employer must give you a copy of the signed consent form, and hold the original on your personnel file. They must keep the consent form on your file for six months after you leave their employment. From time to time, Land Transport NZ will audit TSL holders and, as part of that audit, will ask to see their TORO consent forms.
Sections 199(4) and 199(6) of the Land Transport Act 1998(external link) specify that we can release certain information from the Driver Licensing Register to people other than the licence holder. In addition, some of the information not covered by the Land Transport Act 1998 can be released under the Privacy Act 1993, if you consent to the release.
