How Do I Upgrade My Red Telehandler Card to A Blue Card?
If you are looking to upgrade your Red Card to a Blue Card, you will need to complete an NVQ, which is simple to do and often just requires a simple site visit. Get in touch with our team for more information.
Is It Possible to Renew My Blue Card?
Yes! You must have been keeping regular entries within your logbook, so ensure that this is kept up-to-date. Then, all you must do is the RT17, which is a touchscreen test that can be done in just 20 minutes. However, don’t worry if you haven’t kept your logbook up to date, as there is always the Onsite Assessment or Practical Test you can complete instead.
