Please note that we !!only train groups!! on the company’s own forklift trucks. We do not offer training for individuals.
Forklifts and other industrial trucks place special demands on the driver, which is why they may only be operated by suitably qualified and trained employees.
The training ensures that every driver knows and masters the specific functions and special features of industrial trucks and can correctly assess and avoid the associated potential hazards for himself and others.
To make the training as practical as possible, we come to your company for the forklift license training. In this way, we can train your employees based on the actual conditions that occur, for example, in your warehouse.

Forklifts and other industrial trucks require special skills from the driver, which is why they may only be operated by suitably qualified and trained employees. The German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) prescribes a nationwide uniform and binding examination for the driving of industrial trucks, with the passing of which the so-called industrial truck license can be acquired. This qualification, often referred to as a “forklift license,” is intended to ensure that every driver knows and masters the specific functions and special features of industrial trucks and can correctly assess and avoid the associated potential dangers for himself and others.
According to Section 7 (1) of DGUV Regulation 68 “Industrial Trucks” (formerly BGV D 27), an employer may only entrust persons “with the independent driving of industrial trucks with driver’s seat or driver’s platform” who:
- are at least 18 years old,
- are suitable and trained for this activity and
- have proven their qualification.
The required training for the forklift license is divided into three levels:
- general education
- additional training
- in-company training
Accordingly, every employee who drives a forklift must also obtain a forklift license. To prove this training and qualification to drive an industrial truck, a training course must be held in accordance with DGUV Grundsatz 308-001 (formerly BGG 925) ” Training and commissioning of drivers of industrial trucks with driver’s seat and driver’s platform”. A theoretical test must then be passed, followed by the practical test. After successfully passing the test, the participant receives the certificate in the form of the industrial truck driver’s license.
The goal of the forklift license training is to teach forklift drivers how to safely handle the work equipment. After successful completion of the training, the driving license for industrial trucks is issued and participants are able to operate their forklift safely, economically and appropriately.
In order to maintain occupational safety at a high level, the employer is required by DGUV Regulation 1 § 4 to instruct the insured persons at least once a year. The annual instruction lasts half a day and serves to provide further training and to refresh what has been learned. We would also be happy to carry out this instruction in your company.

At ProSafeCon, the full-day training to acquire the forklift license costs € 990 for up to 10 participants. Each participant receives an official forklift license at the end.
The forklift training takes place at your site. This means that you do not need to plan any travel time for your employees. We train your employees in your warehouse with your forklifts, so we ensure that the training is fully relevant to practice.
We recommend training a maximum of 10 people at a time. This way, we ensure that each participant has enough time to practice. Questions of the participants can also be addressed individually.
A car driver’s license is not a prerequisite for driving a forklift and therefore also not for the forklift license.
