Pivot Steer Refresher




The Pivot Steer Refresher course is typically a 1-day course which includes both theory and practical training. This course is ideal for those candidates who have certification that is between 3-5 years old. On the first day of training, you will be required to show any previous forklift training certification that you have gained. If you cannot produce any certificates, you will be required to complete a 3-day experienced operators’ course.

After training has been completed, you will be required to complete three tests; a theory test, a pre-use inspection test and the practical skills test. All of these need to be passed to obtain your operators’ card and certificate.

Course Info

Driving forklift trucks requires specialised training and instruction from fully qualified trainers. This can help reduce the likelihood of accidents and improve the safety of both drivers and pedestrians. Professional forklift driver training can also reduce truck downtime, racking and product damage. To drive any forklift truck correctly it requires training in a classroom and a hands-on environment, thus ensuring things run as smoothly as possible once the candidates have passed successfully.
