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.

Honestly, I had no confidence in actually getting my HR license before my lesson. Even going into my test I was still a little doubtful but, you taught me everything I needed to know and you were super patient with me. I can’t thank you enough for your assistance. Your support, knowledge, and guidance is the only reason I was successful in obtaining my HR license in one day.
Thank you, your time is beyond appreciated.

Gail Harris

I would like to thanks John Hardcastle for being a very good HR truck lesson teacher from Cairns Truck School. Today I have passed written test and practical test. Without a good clam , patient , understand ing and clear instructions teacher can't make the person who have never had any experience with big truck, understand and control to drive the truck on the road safely.

This is will be first and next step up for me to find a good job in mining to support my family in Australia and back home.

John, thanks again and wish you n your family merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2023.

Really professional and she corrected all the little things that you pick up over the years.
The training encompassed everything that was on the test and the routes chosen on the training were virtually the same as the test. This made me feel very comfortable on the test and I would highly recommend cairns truck school for anyone wishing to gain additional vehicle licensing.
The whole process was also very easy from the initial phone call to the test itself.

Mark Aitken

I had Michelle for my HC to MC conversion. The day course included a theoretical component that was very well supported with the stress of having to do a test allayed through the support and explanations provided.

The practical component was very well explained with the elements she was focusing on identified at the beginning. It didn't take long to absorb and apply the techniques being taught. Michelle created a relaxed and conducive learning environment dissolving any anxieties of not achieving the MC rating. At no stage did I feel pressured or rushed.

Thanks Michelle, two thumbs!!
