What the training includes

At the start of the course, we provide you with a forklift driver manual, which you will use throughout the training course and are able to use to study and prepare for the assessment. We will also provide you with extensive instruction, in a way that’s easy to follow and understand, which includes both theory and practical application.

Once you have completed the training course, you will sit the final assessment. This consists of two parts:

Written – includes questions from the manual provided to you as well as from group presentations (some maths).
Practical – checks of the machine, load shifting, pallet racking and more.
If for any reason you don’t succeed in your first try, we will re-book you in for another assessment free of charge.
