Do you need to renew your forklift licence?
In order to operate a forklift in QLD, you must hold a current high-risk work licence. A high-risk work licence is valid for 5 years and after this time, the licence will need to be renewed. This is done via the High-Risk Work Licence Online Services website.
When renewing your licence it’s important to remember:
If your high-risk work licence has expired, you have up to 12 months to renew the HRW licence. If your high-risk work licence has expired, you are no longer a licenced operator until you have it renewed. If it’s past the 12-month period, the operator must do the written and practical exam again. A VOC cannot be done on an expired licence.
