Have a question?...

Do I get my forklift license once I finish training?

There is no such thing as a ‘forklift license’ or an ‘FLT license’. Once you pass your forklift training, you will receive an RTITB certification of basic training alongside an ID card that specifies which type of forklift you can safely and legally operate. 

Do I need a driving license for forklift?

You don’t need to a UK driving license to operate or drive a forklift. There is no legal requirement for you to have one to begin forklift training. However, you must undergo the required training and you must receive an accredited certification and ID card to state which forklifts you can safely use.

How long is FLT training?

Typically, for complete beginners, forklift training spans across 3-5 days. If you already have experience, a 1-2 day refresher course can be taken to help keep you up with regulations and industry standards.

Find out more information on our Forklift training courses.

Do I need novice training to become RTITB accredited if I previously operated a Counterbalance?

No. The training undertaken at the previous place of work falls under ‘In-house’ training. As long as a certification can be provided when required, only an experienced course is needed. This shortens the duration of training by 1 day compared to a full 5 day novice course.

Do I need to register my employees with RTITB?

No. We provide non-accredited ‘In-house’ training for your staff, accompanied by a certification upon completion.

My RTITB registration expires soon. How do I get a longer registration?

To maintain an RTITB registration, you must engage in refresher training which requires no longer than 1 day.

If your RTITB registration has lapsed, you have the option to let it expire for up to 1 year and still be eligible for refresher training. However, if your registration has been expired for more than 1 year, you must undergo experienced training to re-register with RTITB.
