We won’t train anyone under 17, and yet again most employers won’t employ people under 18 due to other limitations in place due to the weight of forklifts and where they are operating. Road traffic legislation will apply when forklift trucks are operated on public roads and this would be age 17 for trucks up to 3.5 tonnes, 18 up to 7.5 tonnes, and 21 for heavier equipment.

Career path

With experience, you could become a shift supervisor or team leader. With further training, you could work as a forklift instructor or maintenance engineer.

You could also become a warehouse manager.

You could move into industries like construction (construction plant operator) or logistics (lorry driver).
