Common Question: Can I operate other type of mobile elevating work platform with this licence?

In short: This licence does NOT allow you to operate a scissor lift

Operators of any MEWP that does not fall into the High Risk Work Category – this would include scissor lifts or vertical lifts of any platform height, or boom lifts under 11m – should receive adequate information, training and instruction on the use of that type of MEWP. This can be by completing the relevant Yellow Card Module.

In some instances, you may need BOTH a High Risk Work License and Yellow Card. E.g. If you are required to operate a scissor lift of any platform height as well as a boom lift over 11m.
