What do I need to bring with me?
Participants or companies need to provide their own vehicles, ideally those that will be used in the workplace. If trailer towing is a regular part of the driver’s duties, contact the trainer and it may be possible to include trailer training in the regular course. The participant will have to provide a trailer if one is needed and must have their own vehicle insurance. NOTE: Participants must also bring their valid driver's licence and copy of their current driver's abstract.
