What is a forklift licence?
A forklift licence consists of two parts, the F endorsement and the forklift operators certificate. The operators certificate entitles you to drive a forklift. The F endorsement entitles you to drive a forklift where there may be public or on public roads. The operators certificate expires every 3 years, while the F endorsement does not expire.

Am I eligible?
If you have a current full New Zealand drivers licence, you are eligible to receive both the F endorsement and the forklift operators certificate. However, if you only have your learners or restricted licence, you only qualify for the operators certificate.
What type of forklifts can I be trained for?
Our standard forklift training is for counterbalanced forklifts, however we also offer specialist training for all forklift types. Please let us know if you require forklift training that is not counterbalanced. We can also offer training for attachments, man cages, and beginner operator training.
