Pivot Steer Trucks


This ITSSAR accredited training ensures that delegates are equipped with the skills and competence required to operate pivot steer trucks safely and in a range of environments. An understanding of truck maintenance will also be taught, including how to undertake pre and post use inspections. In addition to this, training will ensure that delegates understand their responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work Act so that they can remain legally compliant. This course can be tailored to suit you and is available at beginner and experienced levels, with refreshers also available.

The BITA group for these trucks is P Rider. In order to operate a truck with a different BITA code, delegates will need a conversion course.
