Dangerous Goods Licence For The Transport of Dangerous Goods
Licence endorsements for transporting dangerous goods
If you're transporting dangerous goods, you usually need to have a dangerous goods (D) endorsement on your driver licence.
A lot depends on what you're transporting, how much of it and under what circumstances.
If you're transporting dangerous goods for hire or reward (e.g.. if you're a transport operator or a courier), you will usually need a D endorsement. There are some exceptions, which are listed in clause 9.2 of Land Transport Rule: Dangerous Goods 2005 and Land Transport Rule: Dangerous Goods Amendment 2010. Together these rules contain the current requirements in the Dangerous Goods Rule (The Rule).
