Frequently asked questions

Is there a minimum age requirement for completing Pallet Truck training?
Lift Truck operators in the UK must be over the minimum school leaving age (except in docks where they must be at least 18 years old).

With the exception of Lift Truck operators, there is no minimum age outlined in any UK legislation for other plant operators.

You can find out more here: HSE Workplace Transport FAQ.

Is there an upper age limit for completing Pallet Truck driver training?


Do I receive a Pallet Truck licence when I complete this training?

There is no such thing as a license as such, for any piece of plant machinery in the UK.

The term ‘licence’ suggests a document issued from a governmental or other constituted authority to operate a Pallet Truck Truck. No such authority exists; there are only accrediting bodies and training providers who operate independently of the HSE or any other government organisation.

Successful candidates do receive a certificate and photo ID card, sometimes referred to as a Pallet Truck ticket; this provides evidence that the candidate has completed a Pallet Truck Truck course and is certified to use the equipment as outlined on the Pallet Truck certification.

Training Information

Pallet Truck training achieves a nationally recognised qualification accredited to ITSSAR (Independent Training Standards Scheme and Register) and meets Health and Safety requirements. On completion of Pallet Jack training, candidates who successfully passed their assessments receive a Pallet Truck certificate and photo ID card Pallet Truck licence issued by Didac.

Refreshing a Pallet Truck license is a recommended best practice to eliminate bad habits and update operatives on current legislation regarding the use of Lift Trucks. As a guideline Powered Pallet Truck training should be refreshed every 3 – 5 years (as recommended by the Health and Safety Executive) but some discretion should be exercised to maintain competency and ensure safety.

Clients should make manufacturer instructions for the Lift Truck available to the instructor for Pump Truck training. Training for a Pallet Jack license on-site offers the advantage that the course can be tailored to your own equipment and operational requirements. The outcome is that Pallet Truck certification training is relevant to your company.
