Frequently asked questions

Got a question? We're here to help.

Is a Forklift Driver's License Required?


You can drive a Forklift without a license, only if you are still in the process of obtaining your qualification.




What is the duration of an FLT license?


Although there is no technical expiration date, it is advised that you receive refresher training every three years after you have your license and certificate.




When it comes to FLT training, how long does it take?


Initial FLT Training - This is best for people with less than 6 months of FLT driving experience. This course, including your examination, might take anywhere from 3-5 days, depending on the certification you desire. Refresher FLT Training - This course is for anyone who has previously driven a forklift truck or has had an FLT license. This training is usually only one day long and is designed to swiftly test the operator's skills. It is assumed that if you are attending this program, you already have a thorough grasp of how a forklift truck operates.




Are there any specific qualifications to get my FLT license?


Although there are no specific work qualifications for operating a forklift, operators should be physically fit and strong because forklifts take a lot of muscle and effort. Above all, everyone should be aware of the importance of health and safety.




Is it necessary for me to have a valid driver's license?


To operate a forklift, you do not need a driver's license. You can operate a forklift without a license if you are currently completing your training.




What age do I have to be?


Anyone over the age of 18 can learn to use a forklift truck.




After finishing forklift training, would I be able to get a job as a forklift operator?


Yes. Work is readily available at warehouses around the United Kingdom. Many brick-and-mortar stores are shutting and relocating their operations online. This implies they work out of warehouses or distribution centers, and many, if not all, of them, utilize forklifts to transport items and deliveries. Once your training completed with us, we will signpost your application to recruitment companies and agencies that we work with and help you to find a suitable job. We want you to understand that we work as a end to end service provider.




If I already drive a forklift, do I need to attend an experienced training course?


Depending on who is offering the training, the forklift certification procedure may differ. Forklift operating must be taught in a structured instructional or educational setting. A lecture, online training courses and videos, written materials and study guides, and other instructional resources on forklift operation and safety are all examples of this. OSHA also demands that you offer hands-on training sessions in your warehouse. Forklift operators should be trained by professionals who have the necessary knowledge, training, and experience. This guarantees that operators are properly trained and qualified to deal with the difficulties of their particular job.
