An LO forklift, also known as a load shifting order picker, is a specialised type of forklift designed to lift both the operator’s platform and the load, allowing for safe and efficient retrieval of items from high storage racks within a warehouse.
A standard forklift (LF licence) primarily moves items horizontally, with the forks lifting loads from the ground. An order picker (LO licence) also functions as a type of personnel lift, allowing the operator to access inventory at various heights within the warehouse.
The price to renew your forklift licence can vary depending on several factors. In Victoria, forklift licences generally don’t have an expiry date, however, WorkSafe Victoria recommends refresher training every few years to ensure your skills stay up-to-date. Contact TDT Training Australia for current pricing on forklift licence refresher courses.
An LF licence authorises you to operate standard forklifts, which are primarily used for lifting and transporting loads on the ground level. An LO forklift licence is specifically for order pickers. Order pickers are specialised forklifts that elevate the operator along with the load for retrieving items from high shelves within a warehouse.
If you already hold an LF forklift licence, you may be interested in a standalone Order Picker licence course. Contact TDT Training Australia to discuss the best training path to expand your qualifications and skillset.
Prerequisites can vary, but in general, you’ll need to be at least 18 years old, hold a valid driver’s licence (even a car licence may be enough), and meet basic language, literacy, and numeracy requirements. For the most up-to-date information on specific prerequisites, it’s always best to contact TDT Training Australia directly.
The combined course provides the knowledge and skills you need to safely operate both order pickers and standard forklifts (LF). You’ll learn workplace safety procedures, hazard identification and risk assessment, pre-operational equipment checks, the operation of both order pickers and forklifts, load shifting with an order picker, and all relevant industry regulations (TLILIC0003).
Yes, to obtain an order picker licence and forklift licence, you generally need to be at least 18 years old.

Yes, obtaining your forklift and order picker licences includes a theory component. The test will cover essential safety regulations and procedures (TLILIC0003 test), equipment-specific knowledge, and safe load handling practices.
Upon successful completion of the Forklift & Order Picker Combined Course, you’ll receive both your Order Picker Licence (LO) and your Forklift Licence (LF). The LO licence authorises you to operate order picking forklift trucks, the specialised forklifts used to retrieve items from high warehouse shelves. The LF licence allows you to operate standard forklifts for lifting and moving loads within warehouse environments.
