HOW TO GET YOUR CLASS 5 LICENSE ENDORSED ON YOUR LICENSE AFTER SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETING THE COURSE

This is important because you are NOT licensed to drive a Class 5 vehicle unsupervised on the road until you have your full Class 5 endorsed on your driver license.

After successfully completing the course, present your NZTA course certificate provided by Central Lakes Licensing to a licensing agency (i.e. AA, VTNZ) and they will assist you to apply to have your license amended to include your new full class 5 license (fees apply).
