About Carnz Training

CARNZ Training Ltd has been providing quality driver training to corporate companies, government agencies and community groups across New Zealand since 2005.

Our Director and Training Manager (Andrew Simpson), known to most as ‘Simmo’ has over two decades experience as a trainer.  

As a Registered MITO Assessor, Primary ITO AgExcel Endorsed Trainer, and an NZTA Registered Driving Instructor and Testing Officer Simmo is passionate about keeping all drivers safe behind the wheel.

Simmo is committed to ensuring all training delivered by CARNZ Training Ltd meets industry requirements and the needs of individual businesses.  Prior to any training occurring he will discuss training requirements based on the type of work and terrain being utilised by staff.  This ensures the training provided will be the most beneficial for staff and your business.

Our Training Manager prides himself in keeping abreast with all the technological advances being made by engaging with Manufacturers of vehicles and machines to ensure training is up-to-date and relevant to the vehicle types being trained on.


Again last year Simmo conducted the practical demonstrations for Polaris NZ at the Central Districts and Mystery Creek Fieldays.

The site won ‘Best Customer Engagement Site 2016’ at the Mystery Creek Fieldays.


Don't just take our word for it ...

GNS Science has been using Andrew Simpson (Simmo) as our driver trainer since 2008. 
Simmo has been a valuable resource for GNS Science not only in the driver training he has tailored to our needs but also as a source of practical advice in a number of different areas - reviewing or developing policies, providing feedback on incident investigations, pointing us in the right direction when selecting the best vehicles for our organisation's off-road requirements, and best of all our staff love Simmo's training.
