Moffett Course Details

Drivers who already hold an LGV licence can expand their skills by acquiring a Vehicle Mounted Forklift Certificate, commonly known as a Moffett Mounty.

This qualification enables drivers to carry a forklift attached to the rear of their truck which enables them to load and unload themselves.

What is a Moffett forklift?

A Moffett truck is a truck-mounted forklift. It can perform a number of tasks that regular forklifts can, such as carrying loads, but it is light enough that it can be transported on the back of a truck. A major advantage of using a Moffett truck is that it can save money and time as you won’t need to pay to deliver a forklift, as well as the products.

This course is available to be completed at our Portsmouth depot.

Additionally, this course can be completed on one of your sites, using your equipment. This allows the students to practice on the machines that they will be using daily.

I completed my car to C+E Fast Track with Alex at Theale and passed first time! I'm in no doubt this was down to expert instruction by Alex who was fantastic throughout my two week course. A professional, knowledgeable instructor who calmly guided me through the process from scratch to test. I would highly recommend 2 Start to anyone wanting to learn how to drive cat C or C+E and no doubt anything else. They have great equipment, facilities and instructors and will be the first choice for me if I look to add any more categories to my license and for CPC training.

I had a really good time with Roy C from 2Start learning how to drive a rough terrain forklift. I thought I had quite a lot of driving experience but learning to drive the rough terrain forklift was one of the most challenging thing I have done for a while. Ray C is a great teacher and simplified the complex process of lifting and moving objects with the forklift by breaking down the various tasks contained in the test into manageable sections so that it was easier to learn. I highly recommend 2start Training and Roy C as a great instructor.

Past my category c driving license with rob @ 2 start. I can’t recommend these guys enough. Rob was very calm and gave very clear instructions and advice to improve my driving. He gave grate feedback and positive encouragement. Was happy to answer any questions and concerns I had. Plus I passed my test 1st time with the one week of training. The site is clean and tidy and the lorry’s are kept very clean and tidy as well. Everyone staff member I met at the depot where polite, friendly & approachable. Unfortunately Rob wasn’t present for my test but the depot manager who took me to test was just as polite and friendly. And Rob even took the time to congratulate me after passing.
Great training center to get your C licence and CPC.Great staff and trainers who help you giving you the keys to pass at first attempt.Totally recommended

Whoop Whoop Today I passed my HGV.Thank you Paul and the team at 2 Start.From the beginning when I was sorting out my medical and forms Jack was really helpful. Also when I needed some advice on the Test for Success he was able to help me resolve an issue I had.Pauls patience, calmness and kindness was endless from day one. Everyday I felt more confident, learning new skills and trusting myself to make the right decisions.Passing my reversing the first time was an amazing experience, I started to believe that I could do this.We spent everyday negotiating the local roads, difficult junctions and roundabouts until I was happy.On the day of the test we focused on the areas I need help with and I was able to put into practice all the advise Paul had given me, remembering all his catch phrases.I was absolutely delighted to pass first time. I am so pleased to be able to say that 2 Start is the whole package, from start to finish everything has been amazing.One note is to head office, invest in better quality toilet paper.
