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

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.

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

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