    Frequently asked questions

    Is there a minimum age requirement for completing Ride on Roller training?
    With the exception of Lift Truck operators, there is no minimum age outlined in any UK legislation for plant operators.

    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).

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

    Is there an upper age limit for completing Ride on Roller driver training?
    Do I receive a Ride on Roller licence when I complete this training?
    There is no such thing as a Ride on Roller license for operating Ride on Rollers.

    The term ‘licence’ suggests a document issued from a governmental or other constituted authority to operate a Ride on Roller. 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 Ride on Roller ticket; this provides evidence that the candidate has completed a Ride on Roller course and is certified to use the equipment as outlined on the Ride on Roller certification.
