Forklift Licensing

How do you get a forklift license:

There are a number of steps necessary to obtain a forklift license – also sometimes referred to as a forklift ticket – to properly and legally complete your forklift hire project. A mandatory training course with a ASG must be undertaken, with a practical and theoretical license assessment required too.

There are three steps to getting a forklift license. These are:

  1. Mandatory training course
  2. Pass the practical and theoretical assessment
  3. Apply to WHS QLD for a 5 year license.

There are also some prerequisites that must be met to obtain a forklift license. These require you to:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Have a basic understanding of the English language (verbal & non-verbal)
  • At the examination, you will need several points of identification (e.g., passport, birth certificate, drivers license)

How many types of forklift licenses are there?

There are a couple of different licenses available in Australia. These include:

  • LF: permits you to operate any forklift (with the exception of an order picker/stock picker forklift)
  • LO: permits you to ONLY operate an order picker/stock picker forklift

Depending on the type of work required for your forklift project, you will need to look at the different kinds of licenses and pick what suits you.
