It is a legal requirement that all your lift trucks have a current LOLER certificate before training can commence. Should an instructor arrive onsite & the lift trucks to be used NOT have the certification you will be charged for the full course and only the theory session and no practical lessons will be done. The HSE do perform spot checks and any vehicle without a valid LOLER certification can attract UNLIMITED fines.
What is a LOLER Certificate? Consider the LOLER as your lift trucks MOT. The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) require examination by a competent person of lifting accessories and equipment every 6 or 12 months, depending on the equipment.

Lifting equipment and accessories that must be inspected includes:
Lift trucks
Including powered pallet trucks & pedestrian stackers.


Including mobile cranes, lorry loader cranes, overhead travelling cranes and manual jib cranes.
