TELEHANDLER TICKET RENEWELS
Telehandler Gold Card Tickets are valid for 5 years. Therefore, they need to be renewed after this time.
Participants should be at least 18 years of age.
For instance, applicants between 14 years 9 months and 18 years of age will have an Restricted Gold Card Issued marked with an R. The restriction will only allow the operator to operate a Telehandler under the direct supervision of an unrestricted Gold Card holder of the same Telehandler class. Then, when the operator turns 18 and has held their Restricted Gold Card for 3 or more years, they will require refresher training. After that, the Telescopic Handler Association of Australia will issue them with an unrestricted licence.
