Testing and Certification Details


The Practical Test and Its Importance

Our transportable forklift training culminates in a practical test, a crucial step towards certification. This test, validated and approved by either NPORS, LANTRA, ITSSAR or Quality Assurance (depending on your preferences) is a comprehensive evaluation of your forklift operating skills. Passing this test signifies that you have attained the proficiency required to operate a telehandler forklift safely and effectively. It's important to note that this test is not just a formality; it's a rigorous assessment that ensures you are ready for real-world forklift operations.


Three stages of Training

Basic Training: This is where you'll learn the fundamentals of lorry mounted forklift operation, including handling and safety procedures. It's the first step towards becoming a competent operator.

Specific Job Training: Tailored to your workplace, this stage includes training on specific handling attachments and knowledge of the work environment.

Familiarisation Training: Conducted on the job under close supervision, this stage allows you to apply what you've learned in a practical setting, ensuring you're comfortable and competent in your specific work context.


Test Revisions & Expectations

The practical test has undergone revisions to ensure it remains relevant and challenging. These changes include an updated marking sheet, where certain faults may now score higher, reflecting the emphasis on safety and precision in operations. Additionally, the test now includes a written component, where candidates are expected to achieve a minimum score of 80%. This includes both multiple-choice and open questions, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of both practical and theoretical aspects of transportable forklift operation.
