On the equipment where
control types are variable, enter hydraulic (H),
electrical (E), and mechanical (M), as appropriate.
The licensing examiner maintains a tickler file of
each operators license expiration date. License
renewal action should start approximately 90 days
before the expiration date. The examiner also
maintains an additional history record for
construction operators on the NAVFAC 11260/3,
Construction Equipment Operator License Record
(fig. 1-36). The NAVFAC 11260/3 is retained in the
license file of the operator.
Applications for upgrading a license to larger or
different types of equipment are submitted in the
same manner as an original request. Normally, the
only test required for upgrading a license is an
operator qualifying test for the type and capacity of
the equipment to which the license is being upgraded.
The license examiner signs the upgraded entry on the
OF-346 or NAVFAC 11260/2 and updates the license
file of the applicant.
License renewal is dependent on the license
examiner, provided the renewal date is prior to the
present license expiration date. The examiner
determines if the operator still meets the requirements
for the licence being renewed. When the examiner
has any doubt, the operator should be re-examined in
the appropriate area or areas. Operators whose
license expire before being renewed must be
re-examined as a new applicant. Operator licenses
that expire while personnel are assigned to a combat
zone are automatically extended until assignment to a

equipment officers may
officers in charge, and
revoke or suspend an
operators license at any time for cause. All revoked
or suspended licenses should be returned to the
license office without delay. Supporting justification
and records for license suspensions and revocation
should be kept in the license file of the operator.
The equipment officer conducts traffic court for
traffic violations under the guidelines set forth by the
command. The license examiner is present at all
traffic court hearings and documents traffic court
results in the license file of the individual.
When a construction operators license is
revoked, the examiner should make a notation in the
Date Revoked column of NAVFAC 11260/3.
Revoked licenses are not restored until the operator is
fully qualified through reevaluation and reexami-
nation. A request for reexamination of an operator
whose license has been suspended or revoked should
specifically outline the incidents leading to the
suspension or revocation, so special training emphasis
can be placed on that portion of the reexamination.
Licenses are usually suspended for a designated time
period with no waiting requirement for reinstatement.
LOST OR MUTILATED LICENSES
Lost, destroyed, or mutilated licenses are replaced
upon verification of the original license issued. This
verification can be accomplished by referring to the
License Application Form filed in the appropriate
personnel service record or from the license file of the
License files for the operator are maintained by
the license examiner and stored in a secured location
under lock and key. Each member in the command
who possesses an OF-346 or NAVFAC 11260/2 must
have a license file. The license tile consists of the
NAVFAC 11240/10, SF-47, NAVFAC 11260/1,
expired licenses, and other related licensing matters.
The personnel office must include the license
examiner in the check-in or check-out process of
personnel in the command. Personnel who check in a
command possessing the OF-346 or a NAVFAC
11260/2 must have the NAVFAC 11240/10 and the
NAVFAC 11260/3 pulled from their service record
and forwarded to the license examiner for processing.
