Frequently Asked Questions

I have an expired forklift licence what should I do?

That depends. If it is a WorkSafe issued High Risk Work Licence (HRWL) you can renew it with WorkSafe within 24 Months of the expiry date. If it is a card issued by an RTO, or an old NOSH or an international ticket then we recommend a forklift course. Please call us to discuss your specific situation.

Already hold a HRWL and want to add an LF or LO?

No worries. When you attend our course bring your HRWL and mention it to your trainer. He will  show you how to fill in the application form to add the LF or LO.

Do you provide lunch?

No lunch is provided. We do provide tea, coffee and biscuits and a kitchen if you want to bring your own lunch. There are also some good cafes around us if you wish to buy something on the day and a food van that visits at 9:10am.
