Bendi / Flexi Truck Training Course

The Bendi / Flexi truck (also known as the pivot steer) is a cleverly devised forklift that is easier to use than the reach truck and will also work in narrower aisles. These are articulated (bends in the middle) counterbalance style forklift trucks, but they have a rather different feel in operation.

Compared with other forklift truck types, the Bendi / Flexi is a relative newcomer to the scene and so very few training centres are able to offer it yet. For that reason, employers find it hard to fill Bendi / Flexi Driving positions. Which means you should be able to find well paid employment more easily than those who have not yet invested in a Bendi / Flexi licence.

The Bendi / Flexi Training day starts at 08:30am and finishes at 16:30 with a maximum of three-to-one instructor-trainee ratio. This provides the instructor with enough time each day to fully instruct operators on different types of lifts required to pass your test.


Training can be held at our site in Dudley, West Midlands using our facilities and equipment. Instructors can also come to your site using your facilities and equipment to train your employees.
