The 3 Day forklift course starts every Monday and Wednesday  (Tuesday if Monday is a public holiday). Click here to see booking availability, start times, cost and what you need to bring.

The 2 Day weekend course is conducted over the weekend usually every fortnight and is mostly suitable for experienced drivers. Click here to also see booking availability, start times, cost and what you need to bring.


The Forklift course consists of 3 parts. Theory, practical and assessment. Both are conducted at our training centre at 7 Ogden Street, Bungalow, about 0.5km from the Cairns Department of Transport.

You will need to pass both theory & practice to receive your forklift licence. If you do not pass either part of your assessment, you can come back and have another try for free.
