    Class 2 licence

    Those in the know:

    * How long does it take to get one of these?
    * Does one have to go through the whole learner / restricted / full cycle?
    * Any recommended places in Auckland I could approach to get trained / examined?

    Cheers

    I did this a couple of years ago, you can do the whole graduated license thing or you can pay to do a two day course.

    Step one. Get your class 2 learners license (just sit the theory test)

    Step 2. Do one day in the classroom learning stuff.

    Step 3. Do a couple of hours driving with the instructor.

    Then you get your full license.

    I did mine in wellington so can't help with training places

    Thanks for that Dan. Sounds straight forward enough, the two day course option sounds more inline with requirements.

    I'm looking at doing the same down here. About $500 for the course once you have your learners.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Around $700, it's okay - I've since learned that the course I wanted to get on has been oversubscribed so might look at it again later.

    The courses are expensive but easy. Day one you get your learners. day 2 your full. you do need a medical certificate from the doc. You will also do a logbook course including fatigue management which is now required by law (I think). If you dont have access to a suitable truck the courses are probably cheeper. Do some homework before going on the road code. www.drivingtests.co.nz go to heavy vehicle tests and suprise yourself how many you get wrong, thats untill you get use to the wording of the questions. The biggest piss off is just under $50 for your learners licence another $50 for your full and $50 per endorsement.
