Are you looking for an Experienced Forklift Driver Course in Brisbane, Logan or on-site at your SE Queensland business?

Have you previously held a forklift licence either in Australia or Overseas?

This course is for experienced forklift operators only, who have practical operation skills and have either let their licence expire or are wanting to upgrade their overseas license to the Australian equivalent. Eligibility for the experienced course applies, please see below.

You may be an experienced operator if you have operated regularly in the workplace within the last three months, and any of the following:

  • Currently operating on an expired licence by accident
  • Hold the equivalent licence from the armed forces
  • Hold the equivalent licence from overseas
  • Have some evidence of formal training less than 12 months old

An experienced operator is not someone who:

  • Held an unused licence for many years which is now expired
  • Used to operate every day but haven’t for a long time
  • Have not operated regularly in the last three months

If you don’t identify as any of these, this Experienced Course is not the course for you. Please enrol in the full course, otherwise, call us on 1300 556 387 and we will help you find the right course for you.

Course FAQs

What is an LF Licence?

If you’ve been wondering what an LF licence (Forklift) is, you’ve come to the right place. Forklift truck means a powered industrial truck equipped with lifting media made up of a mast and an elevating load carriage to which is attached a pair of fork arms or other attachments that can be raised 900 mm or more above the ground, but does not include a pedestrian-operated truck or a pallet truck.

A person performing this work is required to hold a forklift truck High Risk Work Licence (HRWL).

What do I need to prepare to take an LF licence course?

Before the LF licence course begins, we provide our students with pre-study material so that they can find out exactly what is involved and start preparing. In addition to the pre-study material, we recommend wearing appropriate safety shoes for working with heavy machinery.

What is included in the course?

Our LF Licence course is held over 3 days with practical and theory-based units where you will learn the following:

  • How to safely drive an LF classified vehicle
  • Plan your workflow efficiently
  • Conduct routine safety checks of your LF vehicle
  • How to shift loads safely using the LF vehicle
  • Shut down your vehicle

What are the LF Licence course requirements?

To attain your LF licence, you need to:

  • Organise training from a registered organisation like One Stop Training
  • Be of 18 years of age
  • Produce 100 points of ID
  • Have an appropriate comprehension of the English language to understand instruction and complete your training
  • You’ll need to lodge your high-risk licence with Workplace Health and Safety QLD, which requires a separate processing fee payable to the state government.

Are LF Licence courses held remotely or on site?

LF licence courses are held on-site to manage practical components of the course and supervise the operation of a forklift. We can deliver training at our facility in Brisbane or organise training at your workplace.

How do I schedule my LF Licence exam?

You can book your LF licence course with One Stop Training online or contact us on 1300 556 387. If you have taken delivery of new machinery, we can help guide you on what registered training you need across all certificates to ensure you maintain compliance with work safety and OH/S regulations. With Afterpay available, organising your LF licensing is easy, and you’ll be ready for work in no time.

Critical Information

It is important to make an informed decision about a course prior to enrolment. In this case, the High-Risk Work Licence test (HRWL) procedure is particularly important. Therefore we recommend reviewing:

Delivery Modes

Face to FaceStudents attend classes at scheduled times and are presented with subject material by a Trainer. Practical training is delivered in a simulated work environment.

Work PlaceThis type of training includes both formal and informal learning and on-the-job supervision is required by a licenced operator.

Language, Literacy and Numeracy

Courses are delivered and assessed in English and require you to read comprehensive learner workbooks, complete a range of written assessments, undertake independent research activities and at times engage in online forums and discussions. Furthermore, the delivery mode relies on the extensive use of written communication.

If you have any doubts about whether you have the language, literacy and numeracy skills to undertake a program, please contact our administration team on 1300 556 387 for further information.

Assessment Requirements

Assessments are conducted by an assessor accredited for this high risk work (HRW) licence class in the Commonwealth/state/territory where the licence will be obtained (i.e. an assessor authorised by a Commonwealth/state/territory WHS/OHS regulator).

Assessment processes and techniques must be appropriate to the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of the work being performed and all assessment must be conducted in the English language.

Assessment of performance must be undertaken in the workplace and/or under realistic workplace conditions which typically reflect:

  • performing tasks/activities within timelines that would be expected in a workplace
  • standard and authorised work practices, safety requirements and environmental constraints
  • using full-scale equipment

If the working zone is located at a ‘live’ site, assessment will continue in all weather conditions unless the safety of the candidate or others could be compromised.

Simulators are not permitted to be used in the assessment of this unit of competency.
