Today, I finally got my forklift license after training for a week. Almost eight hours later, I lost my license by not lowering my forks, crashing into and destroying four overhead light fixtures which cost more than $500 in damage. FML

By the amount of fork lift crash videos online, they should probably require more than a week of training to get your license...

Looks like you’re forked!

I had a 2 minute crash course on how to work the controls and then I was ordered to start operating a rough terrain forklift at my work. After an hour or so I got pretty decent at it. It isn’t difficult to drive a forklift.

Look at all the car crash videos on the internet. seems like you need more than 1 year training.... (canada) honestly some people are just idiots and should never have a license.

I got one in four hours

A week is clearly not long enough for that kind of training. Or was it just you?

Looks like you’re forked!

How the fork did you get that license in the first place!

wow. not that hard to pay attention at work. also would think that you would be extra cautious especially on your first day. ydi

Yea I don’t think a week of training is enough to get certified to drive a forklift. I would say 2 weeks of training then you go around where you work with someone and watch them for a day and then they watch you and guide you the next day and based on how you do you either get more training or you get to drive the forklift on your own

a week is a lot longer than most people. it just depends on their common sense. I wouldnt want to be on the highway next the OP

I’ve seen much worse from seasoned veterans. Try again with a little caution

you're lucky because where i work, if you did that, the company would be fined
