No. If you plan to use a mini digger on private construction sites, land, or access roads, you do not need a valid driver’s license or an operator’s ticket as per legal requirements.
However, the operator must be competent and adequately trained in using the digger/excavator and should have read and understood the operator’s manual to ensure safety.
On the other hand, if you plan to operate a digger excavator on public roads in the United Kingdom, a valid driver’s license is mandatory.
