About the Course
Drivetech Ltd supplies the machines for these courses in Invercargill and Mosgiel but in other places you will have to supply your own or we may know of a firm that would let you borrow them.
This is done at a time to suit the client and one of our assessors. This involves theory and practical parts. Once completed, you will leave to go to the AA or VTNZ to have it endorsed on your licence. There will be a charge of $44.00 per endorsement for this at the AA or VTNZ. These can be done all together or separately.
