Note: The definition of a road, for the application of transport laws is very broad. It includes not only streets and highways, but also any place the public has access to – including bridges, culverts, beaches, riverbeds, reserve lands, wharves and road shoulders. 

Who needs an W, T or R Licence Endorsement?

  • Anyone who drives a special type vehicle that isn’t a forklift on a road – Refer NZ Transport Agency Factsheet No 40 for more details.
