Forklift Training

Did you know that lift trucks are involved in around a quarter of all workplace transport accidents? These commonly used machines can seem simple to control on the face of it, but they can be tricky to master without the right instruction. Here at Martin’s Driver Training, we’re proud to be an RTITB accredited organisation, so you can rest assured that the coaching you and your team will receive ranks amongst the very best out there.

We are committed to delivering friendly, affordable, and comprehensive training across a variety of machines and disciplines, meaning your operators will be in the best possible position to go about their work safely, efficiently and in-line with the relevant rules and regulations.
