Wallace School of Transport - RTITB Accredited Training

If you are aged 17 or over, with good co-ordination and have the skills to drive a car (although you don't have to have a car licence) - You can get qualified to operate forklifts.



At our Park Royal warehouse you can have Counterbalance, Reach and Pivot Steer (also known as Flexi or Bendi) training, certificates & photocard.

At Client Premises we deliver the above and most other forklift qualifications.

Wallace Forklift Counterbalance Training

Wallace Reach Forklift RTITB Training

< Counterbalance - has the forks at the front - For loading & unloading vehicles, moving goods in yards and in warehouses

Reach - has the forks at the side - Used in confined areas and narrow isles in warehouses >

Pivot Steer (also known as Flexi or Bendi) Forklift - used for either of the above situations and in very narrow and tight situations due to its swing mast, which allows the forks to swing at a 90 degree angle either side of the machine.

Do I need all three forklift truck certificates?
Wallace Bendi Truck Pivot Steer Counterbalance Reach Forklift Training

Warehouse and distribution companies want to get more goods into their space. Having Pivot Steer trucks increases storage capacity without paying more rent/rates. But as they keep Counterbalance and Reach machines too, you need to be qualified for all 3 forklifts to be more employable

Training at your location

Wallace Instructors come to your premises and use your facilities to deliver training and certification on a machine type of your choice:

Our training is suitable for:

  • Novice operators requiring a 'first time' certificate
  • For people with some forklift background but no formal training
  • Re-certification and/or conversion courses for existing experienced operators

Experienced operators who have not had the benefit of formal training or where corrective tuition is required, could need more than one day to allow the operator ample time to develop and improve their operating skills under supervision and learn the necessary theoretical knowledge of safe working practices and relevant legislation through classroom sessions supported by training films.  

At the end of training operators take a practical test and a simple written theory assessment to ensure confirmation of learning.

If you or your operators have any concerns regarding literacy or language comprehension (or doubts about fitness to operate machinery), please bring them to our attention when booking or when on assessment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a Forklift Certificate and a Forklift Licence?

When does a Forklift Certificate Expire?

How can I be sure my Certificate will be recognised by employers?

Are there any restrictions to who can attend for training?

Do I need a car licence to take forklift training?

How will I know what length of course I will need?

I have previous forklift experience will one day be enough?

What proof of training and qualification do I receive?

How many people will be with me on training?

How many days of training will I need?

What if English is not my first language?

What length of training course is needed?

Small courses suit very experienced operators with expired UK certificates, who need the same type of certificate.

Other courses are for operators with plenty of experience but no formal training or official UK certificate usually only need a small course, but often more than one day.

Larger course are best for people who have only a little previous forklift experience or who have not used a forklift before.

If you choose a combination course the two or three machine types may not necessarily follow back to back.
It is not possible to complete two certificates in a one day course.

The above durations of courses are based on 2-to-1 training, if we deliver training on a 3-to-1, or 1-to-1 basis will affect the length of course and you would be advised this at the commencement of training.

Company sponsored operators certificates will bear the name of the company unless we are advised otherwise.

I passed my bus licence first time as a result of the excellent training from Jon and Krishna who patiently built my confidence and skill in a very enjoyable way. Thanks

John Duff

Could I take this opportunity to thank you all at Wallace for the assistance in passing my LGV Class C driving test. Special thanks to my trainer at Slough who made me feel at ease and certainly trained me to a high standard. This development will now take my new business to the next level. Many thanks. Wayne Booth Director, UpSafe Scaffolding Ltd

Wayne Booth

After a bit of research, I ended up choosing Wallace and I'm glad I did. My first phone call was very informative and I had only to choose when to start the training. Got all the books from them, studied everything and passed my theory test first time. Went to do some practical training with Gerry the instructor and got my skills polished to a very high standard. Anticipate, not react. The best advice I could ever get. Passed my practical first time and also the following CPC theory and practical tests. If someone asks me where to go for a truck licence, my answer is 1000 times Wallace School of Transport. They care for you as if you were family. That counts more than anything.

Mr Augusto Barale

I passed the practical test first time and this is undoubtedly due to the professional and supportive manner in which I was instructed. Without this, I have no doubt that my progress wouldn't have been so quick or productive. Please once again pass my sincere thanks onto both the administrative staff and Michael himself.

Chris Bridger Student Paramedic

We have been very pleased with the help and assistance and standard of training we have received from your team. I will be in touch shortly to make arrangements for our new trainees.
