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.

I was getting frustrated because I felt that this other truck company that I was taking lessons with was dragging my classes. Even with the experience I had, I knew that there had to be some other way to get my licence in the shortest time possible and at a cheaper cost. I had my wife call Ross up, the driving instructor for Cairns Truck School and explained the situation to him. Without wasting any time, he got me to start my driving lesson with him the following day. I managed to obtain my HC licence thanks to Ross and Michelle for their persistence and encouragement during the lessons. Cairns Truck Driving School is the way to go if you want to get your heavy goods licence! I will definitely consider future driving lessons with you and will advertise your company to my interested friends. Thank you.

I completed my HR restricted day course at Cairns Truck School with Kirsten. Everything well extremely well. We completed 4 x 1hr lessons prior to the test. The information given was straightforward, and not too overwhelming (my first time in a prime mover). I would highly recommend Cairns Truck School for all things transport related, not to mention their prices are highly competitive. 5 Stars

First of all thank you for all of your help and organisation, your tops. Please give Steve a huge pat on the back. I got into the truck thinking I was a reasonable driver and soon discovered just how much I had forgotten or did not know. He was very understanding and coached me not only in how to drive the vehicle safely and responsibly, but also brushed up my road rules. I have absolutely no doubt that if it were not for Steve’s professional attitude and sound instruction, I would not have passed my test on the first attempt. Rest assured, I will be back with you guys when it is time for me to upgrade my licence.

A massive thanks to Kirsten. You are a great teacher and fun to be around. You helped me feel very comfortable while driving with you. Your "tips" and knowledge are something I'll keep with me throughout my driving career. I would highly recommend you for truck driving lessons.

Kirsten was instrumental in curbing my 30+ years worth of bad driving habits (it may have had something to do with the big stick she was wielding) which saw me successful in gaining the MR Licence, on my first attempt, with no "Error" marks in the TMR Driving Assessment Report.
Kirsten's constant narrative on Road Rules and requirements during the driving instruction was most welcome. She highlighted several requirements that I was unaware of.

For CTS, Thank you for getting me on the MR Licence-in-a-day course at such short notice, much appreciated. I have a job interview tomorrow so hopefully this Licence will get me across the line.
I have utilised your services so far for Forklift, Confined Space and now MR. I will require Working at Heights at some stage too, so I will probably be back soon.

Thanks,

Chris.

Thoroughly enjoyed my MR day course with Michelle. I was corrected on a number of issues over the 4 hour lesson and slowly became confident to drive a medium rigid vehicle safely. Will definitely book future courses with Cairns truck school.

I was so impressed with Pete on my first lesson - it was a very full day with lots of information and he was able to teach me so much - the perfect reverse in particular. I was very nervous at first as I normally drive a very small car so this was very much out of my comfort zone. Pete was very supportive! I became more confident in my abilities before the end of the lesson. I went straight into my test - which was a bit daunting as it was pouring rain, my head was buzzing with information overload and I was VERY nervous about passing. I did my test but unfortunately I just went over the speed limit and did not pass - funny - because of all things I was a slow poke when I first started.
I went back a few weeks later to do a refresher with Kirsten and another test. I learnt so much in that one hour! Kirsten was fantastic - a wealth of information, Kirsten was not putting up with my excuses for bad habits and yet very very supportive and hilarious which put me at ease :)
I then went and did my test. I was a little nervous but I was always hearing Kirsten in my ear at every potential critical part of the test. I went through the test and when we came back Dave (tester) had said it was 100% - not one issue! I was so proud of myself but it was awesome to see how happy Kirsten was with the result - she genuinely cared about my results and my ability to drive safely.
I cant thank CTS enough for giving me the confidence to drive the vehicle that I need for work. THANK YOU x

Hi Peter. Thanks ... I appreciate your help in getting over the line and enjoyed your light hearted banter that helped put me at ease, so cheers.
I did think it would be worth mentioning the medical certificate requirements when customers make their initial enquiry or was I just completely naive lol.
Thanks again

Hi team! Thank you so much for all you've done in guiding me to achieve my forklift and hr licence! With such a friendly atmosphere you made me feel like I was coming to catch up with family rather than “getting a lesson” or “doing a test” which made me feel comfortable and confident! Yeaaaa boyyyy HR :) ))) see you in a year to upgrade!

Thank you for the recognition of achieving my HR. I am completely gob smacked that I passed the test on the day – I’m sure Ross was just as surprised and Michelle would be confused! But yes, the long gap between my training and my test proved to be a silly move on my behalf. I was very appreciative that Ross had the skill to take me from incompetent to competent in less than 60 mins. Thank you Ross. Both Ross and Michelle have extremely similar teaching styles and best of all, they are both very chilled out which made me more relaxed. Thanks again. I will have no issue recommending you to other people looking to achieve their truck licences. You all run a very smooth operation from what I can see – keep up the great work.

After getting used to driving the truck, which didnt take all that long, I really enjoyed the course! Peter Pritchard, my instructor, was really encouraging, friendly and easy to understand with his instructions! After a while I felt like I was going on a Sunday drive! Everything Peter taught me fell into place during the test and I passed my licence that day!
I highly recommend Cairns Truck School.

Dear Cairns Truck School staff, my name is Giuliano Alberti, I did a practice session with Michelle a few days ago on a Friday. My driving exam for LR licence was the following Tuesday and I was quite nervous because I really needed to pass in order to get some jobs in March. During the drive Michelle reassured me and made me much more confident than I was before. She is very friendly and likeable, we had a pleasant conversation and left me with a smile. Also, your vehicle is mechanically well maintained and enjoyable to drive. I passed the exam with no problem and so I would like to thank you all for your precious help. I hope you can use this email as good customer feedback for your website. With kind regards.

First class teacher and operator. Kirsten redefined the learning experience, in simple straightforward and logical sequence. I have no hesitation in recommending Cairns Truck School. Thanks to Kirsten I’m on my way to my first interview and job, hopefully. Thanks again and hopefully I’ll see you on the road too.

Cheers, Mark. ( trailer 24 ).

I am so glad I chose to learn with Brett and Cairns Truck School. It’s absolutely the most professional experience you will get if you need a heavy vehicle licence. Everything was explained to me every step of the way. You get instant helpful feedback at the end of every lesson, and being thoroughly taught means it’s more likely you will pass first time as I did. I cannot recommend the school highly enough. Special thanks to Brett, the most friendly and helpful instructor you will ever have the good fortune to meet.
