Prerequisites for Forklift Licenses

Forklift Licence Sydney Australia

 

Are there any prerequisites for getting a forklift licence?

Trainees wanting to enrol in the TLILIC2001A РLicence to Operate a Forklift Truck course must be 18 years of age and have 100 points of valid i.d. In order to understand the assessment material trainees must have a good understanding of both written and spoken English. However verbal assessments, designed for those not quite as confident in their written English, can be booked at an additional cost of $50.

In order to comply with OH&S students must arrive at ACE Forklift Training wearing closed toe shoes, safety boots are preferable, those who do not comply will not be able to continue with their training.

Do I need to have any previous forklift driving experience?

As this is a beginners course, previous forklift driving experience is not necessary. However, we do urge that all trainees take the time to look over the course material sent to them once their booking has been confirmed in order to prepare themselves for the two-day training and assessment.

Advanced courses are available for those who already have previous forklift driving experience. It may be that your forklift licence was awarded to you overseas or that you haven’t operated a forklift licence in quite some time. These courses require you to complete the theory part of your assessment at home and complete the practical component of your training and assessment over one day either at our Padstow location or onsite at your workplace.

Refresher Courses for Experienced Drivers

Refresher courses are also available. New WorkCover legislation requires all HRW licence holders ensure their skills are up to date by attending refresher training after long periods of not operating regularly. ACE offer Refresher Courses that take approximately 3-4 hours and cover the latest regulations and legislation introduced to the test on the 1st January 2013.
