Forklift Licence - LF Class -TLILIC0003 Forklift Course & Assessment

The LF Forklift courses are competency-based and the majority of other training companies have now simply made all courses a minimum three (3) or four (4) day course. At Absolute Forklift Training Newcastle we know that people learn at a different pace so we are keeping our courses at the two (2) day price rate and you only pay for additional days if you require them. So simply we believe you should only pay for a one (1) day or two (2) day course not a three (3) or four (4) day course if you are capable of achieving your forklift or order picker license requirements in this time frame.

Our Rutherford Newcastle Warehouse Training Centre facility is the ideal learning environment. No matter what experience you have in operating a forklift or order picker truck, we have daily training courses that can have you licenced as soon as possible at the very best price.


We can unite you with 27 employment agencies who regularly use our new forklift or order picker licence students to fill their constant ongoing staffing needs.


Our trainees are normally offered positions earning anywhere from $20 an hour to $35 an hour to fill a variety of shifts, employing for retail, warehousing, shipping, or manufacturing environments.

LF Day Forklift Courses Monday To Sunday 7.00 am to 3 pm

The time frame for delivery and assessment of our forklift licence training course is approximately 2 days. Our 2-day forklift licence training course is designed not only for experienced operators but for anyone with little or no experience driving forklifts. Generally, Forklift Training Courses require recommended specific hours. However, if you can provide us with prior learning in both knowledge and driving skills then this can certainly help to possibly shorten the length of the training you may need. In terms of the actual structure of our training program, it would not be accurate to assume the training program to be overly stiff or academic. The truth of the matter is the Absolutes forklift training program can actually be fun and enjoyable. The training program will cover all vital areas of the criterior to enhance your forklift learning experience.

Course Study Material can be picked up from our training centre or we can email all material to our students. It is required that you Study This Prior To Commencement Of Your Course!
