Is there a driving license for working platforms in Germany?

There is no driver’s license requirement for aerial platform operators, or a generally valid ID.
However, there is an obligation on employers to provide their employees with sufficient instruction in operating aerial work platforms (see Industrial Safety Ordinance BetrSichV § 9 and §12 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act)

So that employers can fulfill their duty, there are the following options:

  1. IPAF training with PAL card for operators and instructors accordingly
    ISO 18878:
    The advantage of training according to IPAF with PAL card is international recognition.
  2. Training and commissioning of operators of aerial work platforms
    DGUV / BGG:
    The qualifications according to the training guideline DGUV principle 308-008 are generally only recognized within the scope of German professional associations.

Lift-Manager offers training courses based on both systems.
