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.

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.

John Hardcastle was my HR instructor at the Cairns Truck School. He was patient yet tenacious in explaining the skills and concentration needed, to safely drive a Heavy Vehicle. He ensured my focus on the road, constantly encouraging me to observe the obstacles/road signs in front and around me.

Hi Guys,
Hope you appreciate the feedback to maybe better improve services offered.
Yes I’m happy I can look for work now.
Would I recommend CTS YES YES YES.
Would I recommend what I did. Unfortunately Not in the way it was structured for myself and then with some cautions for the unaware student who has basically no knowledge except the desire to get an unrestricted HR.
A 3 day express course for the unrestricted HR was my objective.
Unless clearly inept or dangerous, A students goal should be put first and not resort or be pressured into the go to safety net of doing the test in the auto at last minute.
This being for someone like myself coming from driving a car only previously.
A. I would not recommend starting on a weekend when the office is closed and no administration to talk to.
Having allocated only 1 hour on the Saturday with a go to driver who doesn’t regularly drive or teach the crash box is a poor foundation for a beginner.
B. I feel my training started on day 2 on the Sunday with an actual regular instructor. Both Kirsten and Ross (understandably) excellent. But At the end of day 2 (now 4+1 hours of training) the pressure was already high that it would be unlikely to do a test on Tuesday in the crash box with only 1 scheduled + 1 extra hour hastily added on Monday.
C.When my hesitation at doing the test was voiced it seemed the easy go to of “do the test in the auto” was the more favoured option versus not having available backup slots for extra training should it be required. I felt at the end of Monday if that was actually day 2 then another day of training I may have been getting closer to understanding what I was actually doing and in control.
In hindsight I did 7 hours in the road ranger but felt it was actually a level of 6 (exclude day I believe I may have been suitable at or after 10 hours at the learning curve I was experiencing.
That maybe over confident but I do believe I was improving. To have extra hours available or
