Which forklift licence level?

To be able to drive a forklift, forklift training is required and is mandatory for health & safety. Once you have completed your training course you will obtain a forklift licence that can be presented to your employer upon obtaining employment.

We at Direct Training provide the counterbalance training course for warehouses, reach truck training courses for warehouses, and telescopic handler training courses which are CPCS accredited for the construction sites at our forklift training in London facility.

Becoming a qualified forklift operator is a 3 - 5 day operation at our London-based training centre and requires the operator to have the knowledge to ensure that they can operate a forklift safely. A trained and certified operator ensures that the forklifts in operation are used safely and for the specified tasks they were designed to be used for. In addition, the qualified forklift drivers' productivity is higher because they can safely move the forklifts at a much faster speed at the same time ensuring the safety of other workers.
