    Course Description

    Course description

    Dumper ticket training instructs learners on how to manoeuvre the truck in confined spaces as well as open areas. Dumper Truck courses can include operational techniques for rough terrain operation if required. Dumper operatives will become accustomed with the vehicle and its operating principles to improve performance and minimise risk of injury.

    In transit with a load of considerable weight, Dumper trucks can become unstable particularly if travelling on an incline. Dumper courses will address these issues and provide candidates with the knowledge to make informed decisions and operate safely if any given environment.

    Drivers should make use of trained Banksman when manoeuvring, responsibilities of which will be outlined during training. Dump Truck training courses include refuelling procedures, regulations for travelling on the public highway and maintenance requirements of the plant machine.

    The ITSSAR Dumper Truck operator course meets the statutory requirements of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, and other relevant statutory provisions, and Approved Codes of Practice.

    Frequently asked questions

    Is there a minimum age requirement for completing Dumper Truck 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 Dumper driver training?


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

    There is no such thing as a Dumper Truck license for operating Dump Trucks.

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

    Can I use this training to drive a Dumper Truck on the public highway?

    To operate a Dumper, whether on the public highway or not, the operator should be properly trained and certified.

    Public highways in the UK are governed by the DVLA; the same rules apply for operating plant machinery on the road as with operating a different type of motor vehicle.

    • The vehicle must be properly taxed.
    • A valid insurance policy must be held.
    • The driver must hold a valid road driving licence.
