Is There Such a Thing as a Forklift Driver’s Licence?

First of all, there is no such thing as a forklift driver’s licence, as there is no central forklift authority. However, every employer has the legal responsibility to provide their employees with the appropriate forklift truck training to adhere to the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulation (1998).

Every forklift driver must be efficiently trained in their operational field and, following training from an in-house trainer or external trainer, the forklift driver will then receive a certificate or another form of documentation to prove they have the legal right to drive a forklift truck, such as a Flexi forklift.

The training provider is the person responsible for issuing a forklift truck certificate or document, and this should state the training given to the forklift driver.

An employer is also required to give their employee an individual written authority document which is the closest documentation to a licence; however, it is not a licence. Therefore, the employer is determining how long the authority remains valid for.

Here at Bexi we have extensive knowledge and experience in the forklift industry, so you can trust our advice. We can also provide you with used forklift trucks which perform efficiently and effectively, but don’t include the new forklift price tag. Therefore, you should take a look at our high quality ranges of Flexi forklifts and Bendi forklift trucks which are ideal for use in a variety of depots, including warehouses and factories.
