OSH Forklift Operator Certificate (with or without F endorsement) – 1 Day

This certificate is valid for 3 years from the date of issue and can be renewed by completing a refresher course. Your WorkSafe OSH certificate covers all powered industrial lift trucks (PILT). If you plan to drive a forklift on roads or where there is public access, an F endorsement is required on a full NZ Driver Licence.

The F endorsement itself does not expire once it has been added to your licence, but it is directly linked to your licence. It is valid as long as your driver licence is valid (i.e. not expired or disqualified from driving).

To add the F endorsement to your licence, you need to take the IVS Training endorsement certificate to a licensing agent (VINZ, VTNZ, AA). You can read more info here.
