If you have an old paper OHS forklift licence or expired licence you will
have to provide the following information to obtain a current licence:

• A copy of the old licence
• Logged hours under supervision of a forklift licensed person
• A copy of the supervisor’s forklift licence

Ag Training will issue you with a learner’s guide (we can supply the learners guide as a video with a voice over), which you will have to study as the written assessment is a closed book.

If you have literacy and numeracy issues, the written assessment may be an oral assessment (where the trainer/assessor will ask you the questions and the trainer/assessor will write the answers you have given).

The procedure for the assessment is as follows:
• We have to give WHS three full working days notice, before the assessment can be undertaken
• The written assessment is undertaken first and you have to pass it before the practical assessment is undertaken
• The practical assessment is next
• If you are deeded competent on the forklift you will be issued with an AS1 form, which will allow you to operate a forklift in the workplace legally

Do you have access to a forklift at work and a forklift licence person?

If yes, than we can do the following training:

  • We come to your workplace and do an induction on the forklift. This covers the legislation to operate a forklift and practical training and issue a logbook. This will take about three hours.
  • The trainee goes under the supervision of the licensed supervisor to log their hours in the logbook. There is no set hours to be logged, the supervisor deems the trainee competent to operate the forklift.
  • The trainee must study the learners guide, because the written assessment is closed book.

 

We then have to give WH&S three business day notice before we can come back to the workplace to do the written and practical assessment.

We’ve put together this handy pre-start forklift checklist to assist you.
