Information Training Forklift Driver

orklift drivers are usually employed in industry and in retail and wholesale trade or by forwarding companies. There they work mainly in the warehouse, but also in factory halls and cold stores. Often heavy loads have to be placed precisely at great heights. The changes in the centre of gravity of the forklift truck associated with these operations very quickly put an untrained driver in critical situations.

  • are mentally and physically fit,
  • are trained theoretically and practically,
  • have successfully passed a driving test and
  • are authorised in writing by the employer to drive the forklift (in-house driving licence).

In order to obtain a certificate of competence by passing a driving test, training as a forklift truck driver is required in any case.
