Rollover Prevention Training

Around 30% of truck accidents involve a rollover. They often seriously injure or kill the driver, plus cause extensive damage to freight, the truck and public property.

This course explains truck and trailer stability, including what causes rollovers, common scenarios that all truck drivers will experience, and how to avoid them.

Why do a rollover prevention course online?

Many truck drivers have rolled a truck or trailer because rollover training is not a requirement when becoming a truck driver. This course ensures that drivers are aware of what causes rollovers and how to avoid them without having to push the boundaries in the truck.

What will you learn?

  • What causes rollover crashes
  • What happens during a rollover and what are the consequences and outcomes
  • How the centre of gravity affects rollover risk
  • How the SRT and load distribution affects the centre of gravity and the vehicle's stability
  • Steering and braking methods that should be used to minimise the risk of a rollover
  • Loads and vehicle types that are most at risk of tipping
  • What technology can be used to prevent rollover crashes


Who is this course for? Drivers of class 1 (light trucks), class 2 and 4 (medium and heavy trucks) and class 3 and 5 (medium and heavy combination vehicles). Car, ute and van drivers are best to do the light vehicle load security course.

What happens when you pass the course? You get a certificate of completion.

What training does this complement? This training complements our heavy vehicle load security and driving in difficult conditions courses.

Is there any instructor-led training? This course is online-only, but TR Driver Training has a stability tanker (a tanker with outriggers) and they run courses nationwide at various racetracks where you can experience what a rollover feels like, and how the technology works to prevent it
