Updated Basic Operating Skills Test for Counterbalance and Reach Trucks

The Accrediting Bodies Association for Workplace Transport (ABA) is pleased to release the updated version of Basic Operating Skills Test for Counterbalance and Reach Trucks, rider and now stand on versions. (B1,B4, D1, D2, D3)

The new test can be implemented from 8th January, however, the mandatory use of these test will be need by training organisations from 1st April 2021. Any tests held on or after this date that do not use the new format will be invalid.

The ABA has listened to the feedback from the training industry, regarding “shunts in chicanes” and also updated relevant wording, to bring inline with other ABA standards.

We would strongly encourage everyone to read the new test in detail to ensure they are aware of all of the changes.
