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. The areas that we cover include; Portsmouth, Chichester, Fareham, Southampton, Romsey, Eastleigh, Reading, Crawley, Newbury, Basingstoke, Brighton and Worthing.

Facilities Required on your site

If you want to complete training on one of your sites, using your equipment, there are a few requirements that you need to meet. You must have a training room that is suitable for the number of candidates participating and a sufficient amount of practical training space to carry out assessments and testing. Also, delegates will be required to wear PPE as per the company’s internal risk assessments.

Click the link to read our Facilities and Equipment Requirements Guide for more information on how you can complete training on your site. Facilities and Equipment Requirements Guide.

This can be lowered if required, which can decrease the duration of your course.

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.

I was trained by 2 wonderful trainers at 2 Start. They were so supportive, and both gave me their form of training, which made it better for me to get through my test. I had 4 days of training and enjoyed every single minute of it. The vehicles are really nice to drive, clean, in good condition.I was treated with respect and kindness by everyone there and I found it a pleasure to go every day.The only thing I found wrong with the whole 4 days, is the toilets were awful they needed cleaning and there was no toliet paper or hand soap.But apart from that I would 1000% recommend this driver training company to anyone.I would also like to thank both gentleman who got me to and through my training.
