My first concern is that my 15 yr old is in their last year at school, so I cant really do much at the min as this is a very important year for them. My job is just not the same as 10 yrs ago so I am looking to change that, so I did my HGV class 2 recently, and I am saving to do my HGV class 1, as I believe it would be easier than "going back to school" as I couldn't do that anyway as I have a mortgage to pay. I hate the British system and how certain people get a shed load of benefits and I am working like a bloody idiot paying for it all. I understand that there are a lot of people out there saying " well at least you have a job,house etc" but I bloody worked hard to get that job and what I have. I just want a new start...... I am sure there must be people like me on here.
Hi,I moved fro Corby Northants to Canada in 2007 ,Im a truckdriver ,I drive longhaul Canada and the states ,if you want any advice send me a PM ,Neil

No , it isn't is it.

You know, it is better to feel a pull to a new country , rather than a push from your current place of residence.
What would be your expectations or aspirations for your new family life in a different country ?

Do you want less people around you for instance. Are you sporty? Do your children wish to move. These are the types of things that help settle a new life in a new country, not grumbles about what others do with their own lives.

With regard to truck driving in New Zealand. This was never an occupation that could gain someone NZ residency unless they earned above the average for the work . In over 10 years I have only known of one. A specialised tanker driver.

As Persephone notes, truck drivers are currently on the NZ immediate shortage list, however this occupation is coming off this list next month. This could mean some overseas truck drivers could well find their temporary work permits will not be renewed. That is also even if they have been in NZ for several years.

FWIW as it stands , NZ may not be the country at the moment to offer your family a stress free new start. This is my opinion only though. I have no crystal ball.

I'd also suggest looking to other areas of the UK & maybe inter-continental driving.
