Candidates fitness to train

LLTltd follows the guidelines laid down in the ACOP 117 and ALLMI accredited training standards.

Medical considerations

Candidates selected to operate lorryloader should be free from disabilities, either physical or psychological, that might pose a threat to their own health and safety or the safety of others who might be affected by them operating a lorryloader. Fitness for operating should always be judged on a case-by-case basis. A risk assessment may be needed to identify any hazards associated with a candidate being trained by LLTltd.

Alcohol and Drugs

LLTltd Never allows anyone who is unfit because of alcohol or drugs (prescription or recreational) to train or operate even under close supervision. All candidates who undertake training with LLTltd must declare any thing that may affect there ability to training/driving before the start of any period of Instructor Supervised training. LLTltd may require its candidates to sign a declaration to this effect at the start of all our courses.


Candidates may have developed skills which compensate for their disability. LLTltd may consider obtaining medical advice prior to the start of any course about a candidates suitability for the particular training they will be required to do with regard to training. The Equality Act 2010 will be considered in all cases.

The Drivers’ Medical Unit at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) publishes At a glance: Guide to the current medical standards of fitness to drive. This is aimed at health professionals and applies to lift trucks on the road, but can be applied to all work with lift trucks. For most work with lift trucks, a standard of fitness equivalent to that for the Group 1 entitlement (ordinary driving licence holders) would be appropriate. Activities such as working in a particularly demanding environment, working at night or moving highly toxic or explosive materials would probably be more appropriate to the Group 2 entitlement (heavy goods vehicle licence holders).

LLTltd may ask to apply a pre-operators experience test to avoid wrong advice being given to a candidate with regard to disability’s and the training we can offer.
