Your Class 4 Licence, Easy As

Bus-ted! We just caught you looking into getting a class 4 driver’s licence, and we’re so glad we did. Here at 2Fathers driving training, our founder James Ford-Hathaway is a former (and exceptional) bus driver, and so he really knows what it takes to drive well and to drive, well…safely.

A Class 4 Licence Course. Yes, It Really Does Make a Difference

In New Zealand, you can still sit for your class 4 driver’s Licence without participating in an approved course.

Did you know, however, that doing so can delay the process for several months? With our course (which is only a few days, mind you), you could have your NZ bus Licence in a fraction of the time, getting you behind the wheel sooner rather than later.

Our class 4 driver’s Licence course is ideal for those who wish to acquire their Licences quickly. For example, maybe you need it for work (we offer bulk services to corporations, too, just a quick FYI), or perhaps you want to upskill so you can finally get that heavy mobile home you’ve always wanted. Either way, our course can do more than just get you over the line.

We’ll make sure to equip you with all the necessary tools to ensure you not only pass your test but that you do so confidently and with flying colours.
