I have lost my licence, can I get another?

First of all there is no such thing as a "forklift licence" in the UK and as far as I know, no country has them. Your "licence" was actually a certificate of basic training or it may have been a small card often incorrectly called a "permit"

If you have lost your "licence" then you may have trouble getting a replacement. Try the training company involved who may supply a replacement certificate if requested but you should be aware that they do not have to. If you are registered with the NORS scheme you should contact RTITB for information.

In any case, if you were trained more than three years ago you are usually required to undergo a refresher course so the old documentation may not be valid.

Please do NOT email me about a replacement licence. I have had that many requests that nowadays I just ignore them and I don't know the answer anyway!
