ADR Courses

Training for drivers of vehicles carrying hazardous goods

To legally drive a goods vehicle carrying regulated hazardous substances a driver must hold an ADR Vocational Training Certificate.

To obtain an ADR Training Certificate drivers must attend a Department of Transport approved course and pass the relevant SQA Examinations.

Tanker Courses

Tanker drivers will additionally require The Tanks Module.

The training is carried out under the National (Dangerous Substances) Driver Training Scheme which is the training scheme recognised by the Department for Transport, RHA, FTA and all leading chemical manufacturers.

Other Courses

We can offer courses tailored to suit the particular goods which your drivers carry e.g. Core, Tanks and Flammable Liquids.

Training Courses can be conducted “in company” providing Department for Transport and SQA criteria are met. The Department of Transport limit the number of students to 16 per course

NOTES – To gain the certificate a driver must pass a series of written multiple choice examinations. The Department of Transport stipulate that the driver must do these examinations without any assistance.

Certificates are issued direct to successful candidates by the DVLA about 1-2 weeks after the examination.

ADR Examinations can now be taken online (E Tests) at our training centre. Once training has commenced candidates can take their exams online and receive instant results without having to wait up to 3 weeks for paper exam results. Please call +44 (0) 1905 691 691 for more information.
