Machinery Wheels, Tracks & Rollers


If you drive a special-type vehicle that isn't a forklift on the road, you must have a W, T or R endorsement on your driver licence.

To do any combination of Wheels, Tracks or Rollers endorsement course together will take approximately four (4) hours (1/2 Day).

This course includes theory and practical components and includes:

  • W endorsement - vehicles that run on wheels that aren’t forklifts, passenger vehicles, tractors, fire engines, trade vehicles or vehicle recovery service vehicles
  • R endorsement - vehicles that run on rollers.
  • T endorsement  - vehicles that run on self-laying tracks.

The size weight and speed of the vehicle will be relevant to the class of licence you hold. There is a table of the limits on this NZTA WTR endorsement fact sheet.

To find out more - some useful information is available on the NZTA website.
