If you're not sure whether you need a V endorsement, please call us on 0800 822 422.
What is a vehicle recovery service?
A vehicle recovery service is the towing or carrying, on any road, of a motor vehicle.

It doesn’t include the following activities:

the towing or carrying of one motor vehicle by another when not directly or indirectly for reward, and when the towing or carrying vehicle is not designed or adapted for towing or carrying motor vehicles
towing of disabled vehicles using a rope or flat tow by:
a person employed or contracted by a motoring association or an insurance company where the towing or carrying is limited to the removal of a vehicle to a place of safety, or
the owner or employee of a garage or workshop who intends to repair the vehicle
when the NZ Transport agency has notified the operator of the service that the vehicles carried can be considered goods
the removal of vehicles by the NZ Defence Force tow trucks at the request of an enforcement officer
routine towing services operated by NZ Defence Force personnel in areas where there is no suitable and available commercial towing service nearby
