Transport Operator Register Online (TORO)

The Transport Operator Register Online (TORO) is a free, internet-based resource that enables holders of transport service licences (TSLs) to check that only licensed drivers are driving their company vehicles. It also allows licence holders to monitor their drivers' licence status and activities.

TORO users can only get this information with the written consent of each driver they wish to monitor.

Frequently asked questions

Information for TSL holders

How is TORO different from Driver Check?

TORO provides a higher level of information than Driver Check, including information about driver licence restrictions, passenger endorsement expiries and demerit points.

If I'm already with Driver Check, can I switch to TORO?

If you have a TSL, you can transfer to TORO by sending us an email with your postal address details, noting that you are a current Driver Check user and wish to transfer to TORO.

Email us about TORO

Before you make the change

You'll have to get consent from every driver you wish to add to your TORO list, even if you've already got their consent for Driver Check.

How can I join TORO?

If you have a TSL and would like to join TORO, send us an email with your postal address details and we'll send you an information pack.

Information for drivers

Do I have to sign up to TORO?

No. If you don't want to provide your consent, please talk to your employer about any alternatives.

What happens to my consent form?

Your employer must give you a copy of the signed consent form and hold the original on your personal file. They must also keep the form on your file for six months after you leave their employment. From time to time, we audit TSL holders and ask to see their TORO consent forms.

Can the NZ Transport Agency release my information via TORO?

Sections 199(4) and 199(6) of the Land Transport Act 1998 specify that we can release certain information from the Driver Licensing Register to people other than licence holders.

In addition, some information not covered by the act can be released under the Privacy Act 1993, if you consent to its release.
