How to become a forklift truck driver in 2022?

This past year has been a tough one. May be a career change is just what you need. Ever thought about becoming a forklift truck driver?

So.. New Year,  New Start. In January there are often a lot more opportunities available to people as a lot of people leave their jobs in a December and start somewhere new in January. Furthermore, new contracts = more supply and demand for staff. So January is the month for you!

Ultimately as with all driving tests, you need to pass a theory AND a practical.

Forklift Truck Driver Simple Steps

A forklift theory test will ask you about basic manoeuvres. It also gives you basic safety knowledge and a brief overview of what’s required of a forklift truck driver. Revision is key so you don’t just turn up to the test as we don’t want you to just pass. We want you to be proficient so that when our trainers leave site, you have the key skills to be a brilliant driver and do not fall back into any bad habits that you have previously held.

Another thing that is useful to do, especially if you are a novice, is to have a look at forklift practice papers online. Often you will discover information that you may not have previously held. It is always good to refresh your memory and update your knowledge. This is because guidelines are rapidly changing and it’s important that you are up to date with the current literature. New rules are coming in all the time, especially regarding PPE and manoeuvres.

Whether you are a novice, experienced untrained or refresher.. there is always something to aid your development on our website.

Use Forklift Theory Practice Papers
