East Coast Driver Training is an RTITB accredited Forklift Training Centre.

We offer Novice, Experienced, Refresher and Conversion training on various types of trucks.

All our trainers are RTITB accredited Instructors/Examiners. Our industry experience means we understand the operational needs of our business customers and train/assess operators to the latest industry and training standards.

Forklift Training can be delivered at either our Training Centre in Norwich or at our Training Centre in Colchester or on-site at customer premises with minimal disruption to your business operations. 

All our customers will receive an RTITB nationally recognised (NORS) licence or Company In-House certificate of competence if preferred.

Course Types.

Novice: Suitable for persons who have no previous experience or have not operated for a long period of time.

Experienced: It is anticipated that persons attending this course will have had some previous experience (possibly self-taught) and will be familiar with the steering characteristics of the machine.

Refresher: This is suitable for persons who hold a current or recently expired certificate/licence. You will have had regular use of the type of machine you will refresh the licence for and have a good knowledge of LOLER and PUWER.

Conversion: You will currently hold a licence for one type of truck and then convert that knowledge into learning the different characteristics of your selected machine. You dont have to have held a current licence for a specific length of time before taking this course. For example, you can learn to operate the Reach truck immediately after successfully gaining your qualification to operate a Counterbalance.
