Q:

Where can I get a forklift license?

A:

Receiving a forklift license requires an employer to certify the operator's knowledge and safe use of the vehicle before issuing a license. Forklift licenses are not an officially required certification and are used by employers to verify OSHA compliance.

OSHA requirements only require that forklift operators are certified by their employers, and while no specific testing is required, some evaluation is necessary. Employers are required to certify that forklift operators are able to operate the powered industrial truck they are hired to use safely. Several organizations, such as Goodwill, provide certification programs that cover necessary training. Businesses like CertifyMe.net sell educational resources and testing, providing proof of training to the employer.
