Why recruiting in Asia when you can get experienced Latin American truck drivers? They handle similar trucks and roads in Latin America and they face no visa hassles to come to New Zealand.

What about European drivers? They have good working conditions in Europe  but many are interested in giving their family a better quality of life.

We screen, background check, interview and coach the candidates getting them ready and passing Class 5 theory test for a flat fee.

You choose the driver, interview him and provide the paperwork for the visa application. We can take over the visa processing with our Licensed Immigration Adviser for an extra flat fee.

Either way the driver arrives with an approved work visa and you provide him with the means to pass the class 5 practical test. Or we can take care of that too for another flat fee. In this case we get him through his Class 5  practical test within 10 days of arrival.


Let us take care of this, our time frame from selecting a candidate to first day at work is 60 days. 

Fast, affordable and straightforward. Contact us today!


We recruit drivers with the right experience for New Zealand, an H&S mindset and a honest working attitude. We do not settle for second best and nor should you.



The people behind Trucking NZ Recruiter


Silvia Parra

Truck driver in Europe and New Zealand

I have four years experience long haul truck driving in Europe especially refrigerated urgent transport, DGs and courtain-siders.

Since 2014 I have driven in New Zealand, both in the South and in the North Island, mostly tankers.

The shortage of drivers needs many solutions and short term the importing of experienced drivers is the best and safest option. As a truck driver sharing the road with others I just want the best professionals out there.

I understand the challenges that drivers face when they arrive to New Zealand. There are a lot of little things to take care of to make the transition smoother for them and I do just that: Explain them what New Zealand road culture and working standards are and preparing them to be work ready and road ready.

And we take care of the visas and truck license conversion if you want the full service package, with your driver/drivers ready to start working knocking at your door.
