The aim of this course is to produce an LUV operator that can demonstrate the knowledge, skills and attributes for all essential areas of “best practice” guidelines for LUV driving in the workplace.

This course enables the individual to drive an LUV effectively and safely over varied terrain. The trainee will also be able to demonstrate the appropriate responsibilities of a driver of an LUV vehicle with emphasis on accident prevention.

Note: No licence is required if 100% of use is on private land with no public access. Where public land is to be accessed the correct licence and registration is required.

Entry Criteria

The course requires a level of fitness to demonstrate competency for the skill being trained.


For 24553: 24556
For 24558, 24560 and 24562: 24553

Both of which will be delivered during the course.

Learning Style and Assessment Processes

  • The course, by necessity, involves some theory learning in order to aid completion of the written assessments.
  • Participants will be kept focused by active involvement in practical sessions interspersed during the course.

Where a trainee shows competency early on day two they are released to return to work while those requiring further assessment can receive the full attention of the course facilitator.
