I completed my excavator, roller and skid steer tickets through cairns truck school, thanks to my trainer Taffy. Taffy was one of the best trainers I've had through any course I've completed, he was professional, friendly, informative and very patient in his methods. I honestly felt able to go and operate any one of the machines straight away on site with confidence.

I would thoroughly recommend Cairns Truck School as a training organisation to obtain a heavy vehicle licence. They were very accomadating to all of my needs and provided a professional and prompt service.
I would also like to extend a personal thankyou to Kirsten who was my instructor. Kirsten was patient, encouraging, provide clear instruction and firm when required. She also treated me as a competent and capable individual and acknowledged my prior skills. This helped lift my confidence and allowed me to successfully gain my MR licence. I personally recommend her as an instructor for anyone who is nervous, anxious or female and wants to succeed in the transport industry.

What an experience.
We are a traveling family currently living in Cairns. As we were staying in the area I decided to get my truck licence.
Brett and Michelle were very helpful and patient considering I had no experience driving a truck. A few days later I am fully licensed to drive an unrestricted HR truck. Amazing!
One of my life long dreams complete.
Thankyou to everyone at Cairns truck school for all your help.

Anthony Cave

Thank you to the Instructors and Staff of Cairns Truck School, who made me feel comfortable and confident while giving very practical instructions. They gave very informative lessons while guiding me through the learning process.
I definitely benefited from the staff who know what the assessors want in the driving test.
In my case, I think I could have benefited from having a louder indicator signal alarm, but that's just me.
I would not hesitate to use Cairns Truck School again should I need any further Tickets or licenses.

Joe Has a very good nature to his instruction! He has a settling way in his instruction and pointing out our bad habits and necessary things we all need to do & don't when taking a HR test! The UD truck is very easy to get used to, The other truck you use not! It's important that students can feel at ease as quick as possible so they can focus on passing the test.

Karen Brodie

I undertook the HR day course with Ross and followed up with my test on the same day. Ross was knowledgable, friendly, and provided a relaxed and educational environment. He clearly explained what I needed to do and was easily able to answer my questions while providing feedback on points I needed to work on. I went into my test feeling confident and was able to pass with no trouble at all.

While trying to gain my licence I encountered a couple of obstacles related to family commitments and COVID-19 lockdowns. Ross, Kat and the whole team were unfazed by any issue and were always ready with a solution to enable me to book a time that worked for me. I work in transport and logistics and will absolutely recommend Cairns Truck School to my friends and colleagues in future.

Wow, what an experience, I upgraded my car licence to HR-B Condition in a day.

The initial interaction and booking process with Cairns Truck School was flawless and very professional.

Being an older guy and not having any experience driving a large truck I was very apprehensive and nervous but Jeff my instructor has the patience of a Saint!

Jeff is a very knowledgeable instructor, his teaching style is calming and reassuring and he ensures you are provided with the appropriate level of knowledge and training to set you up for success.

I would highly recommend the Cairns Truck School, you guys were all great. Thank you.
