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 in a hands-on environment, thus ensuring things run as smoothly as possible once the candidates have passed successfully.

What is a Reach forklift?

A Reach forklift truck is an extremely agile forklift, which works well in tight spaces, they are usually found in warehouses. A major benefit of a reach forklift, is obviously the heights they can reach too. The main use of a reach truck is to load and offload products at big heights. However, unlike a counterbalance truck, a reach truck works best indoors. We can also offer a conversion course to counterbalance forklifts.

Locations

2 Start Training can offer you the choice of 5 forklift training centres, 2 centres in Reading, 1 in Portsmouth, 1 in Worthing and 1 in Southampton covering the Hampshire, West Sussex and Berkshire areas.

In addition to our training centres, we offer our customers the opportunity to have their staff trained on their own premises using their own machines. This can give the students the advantage of being trained on the machine that they are going to be operating on a daily basis.

Forklift training courses are all conducted under our accrediting body; ITSSAR (the Independent Training Standards Scheme and Register). Being a part of ITSSAR ensures only the highest quality of training and testing; and helps us to ensure that you have everything you need before you go to work.

Duration

On successful completion of the course, if not already registered, candidates will be registered onto the ITSSAR TOP scheme (Trainer Operator Passport) and issued with a photo identification card (showing the categories of entitlement) and A4 Certificate; both lasting up to 5 years.

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.

Thanks so much John for all your help getting me test ready! I felt so comfortable and confident on the day because of all your patience with me, as I learnt to drive the van, and be a better person. Sadly, I let you, and myself down on the day, when I miss read the speed limit on one section of road, that lost me the pass. However, it showed that I should have passed, as on my retest, 2 weeks later, it was a PASS, with ZERO minors!Thanks to Paul too! You really helped calm my nerves on my retest, and got me reacquainted with the van/JAAAAAAAG! 🤣Can’t wait to start our motorhome journey, as copilot!Couldn’t have done it without you all!ClaireThe Venture Crew

I had the pleasure of having Greg as my instructor. I also passed my HGV class 2 test first time & I believe it was massively helped by what Greg taught & explained to me. Greg was always patent with me & explained everything to a depth that I could really take in & remember. Anyone looking to learn & pass their HGV test, 100% recommend using 2 Start. Would put 1000 stars if I could. Thank you Greg!.
