What is an F endorsement?

If you are required to drive your forklift on a public road then you will need to hold an F endorsement on your driver licence. Axiom Training includes this as an option during our 1-day forklift courses. Simply select this option during the booking process.

What’s a public road?

The definition of a public road, as referenced within the approved code of practice is “A place to which the public have access, whether as of right or not”.

How often do I need to complete a refresher?

Every three years. If your certificate expired less than 3 months ago you can still complete the refresher.

Do I need a full driver licence?

If you are completing an F endorsement then you will be required to hold a full class 1 licence. A driver licence is not required for our Forklift Operator courses.

If my employee is required to operate a 4 tonne forklift, does the completion of the OSH Certificate and practical on a lower weight machine gain them the required accreditation?

Our courses provide the required external certification for all forklifts. The approved code of practice does however state that an employer must sign-off all operators on the use of machinery within the workplace. You can check the requirements on the WorkSafe New Zealand website.

Where can I find my details about forklift training requirements?

WorkSafe New Zealand provide detailed information on the requirements and training required for Forklift operators within the Approved code of practice.

Can you provide forklift training at my worksite?

Yes. We offer forklift training onsite at your location in your working environment, or nationwide at one of our branches.
