A forklift license is actually a certificate. The certificate indicates that the employee has been trained and evaluated by the employer to operate the equipment. It is required by OSHA that the employer certifies the training.
How long does it take to get a forklift certification?

Can I drive a forklift without a Licence?
The short answer is “yes” – it is necessary to hold a licence to operate a forklift.

You must be within sight and sound of a licensed operator at all times.
How much does a forklift driver make?
