Paul McKinney Driver Trainer RD Petroleum RDP
Driver Trainer

Paul brings a wealth of experience to his role as Driver Trainer for RD Petroleum. Having spent his working career in the transport industry he started working for BP Contractors as a driver over ten years ago, and in 2011 won the NZ BP Driver of the Year competition. His role has evolved into a specialised training field and he moved over to RD Petroleum just over a year ago, when RD Petroleum added the bulk fuel deliveries in Canterbury for BP Oil NZ to their growing business. He not only has his heavy traffic license with dangerous goods and I (Instructors) endorsement, he holds a National Certificate in Commercial Road Transport and is also qualified to work with aviation fuel.

Paul spends his day to day ensuring RD Petroleum’s 45 plus drivers have the knowledge and skills to operate safely and professionally around the country in both driving and fuels handling. He finds it rewarding to see new drivers join the fuel industry and develop their skills with the support of a professional team to become fully trained and confident tanker drivers.

Paul enjoys working at RD Petroleum as there is a wide variety of work and it’s an exciting, growing, ever-changing industry and company. He likes that at RD Petroleum, the company is going places, and that means more responsibility, new challenges, new places to go and people to see.

Outside of work, Paul enjoys spending time with his family, travelling with his wife, and spending time with his nephews. He enjoys a bit of target/clay shooting and doing some DIY around the home.
