COURSE BENEFITS

It’s the only one of its kind in New Zealand. Nowhere else can you get both the theory and practical experience of heavy vehicle stability, roll over dynamics. This is real, in cab hands on learning. By completing this course you will experience a vehicle roll over and learn how to prevent it.

A practical and theory-based course designed to provide drivers with advanced skills, knowledge and awareness of the dynamics associated with heavy vehicles during cornering, braking, emergency steering manoeuvres, and in the event of a jack knife.

Ideally suited for drivers of vehicles with a high centre of gravity (livestock, Rubbish collection, General freight, Concrete, Liquid loads) in either a truck and trailer unit or a Semi Trailer / B-Train. You will be professionally trained by qualified and experienced instructors.
