ADR Driver Training

An ADR Vocational Training Certificate is required by any driver carrying "In-Scope" packaged Dangerous Goods, for a tanker of >1m3 or tank container of >3m3  and most radioactive or explosive goods - regardless of the gross weight of the carrying vehicle, and is valid for five years.

There is no required pre-qualification, anyone with a full UK driving licence may attend. In order to obtain your Vocational Training Certificate (VTC) you must attain the following minimum qualification:

CORE + PACKAGES or TANKS + at least ONE HAZARD CLASS

Once obtained, additional classes or modes of carriage can be added at a later date if required.

The initial course is held over three-and-a-half days for goods in Packages, or five days if goods in Tanks are also required (The tankers module can be taken as an individual one-and-a-half day course). Refresher courses all run over three days.

Explosives and Radioactives courses for one day if it is added to an existing qualification, or two-and-a-half if it is the only entitlement required. Explosives and Radioactive courses are arranged as they are required, on a day most convenient for the candidates, usually on a Saturday.

Should a driver only ever carry one class of Dangerous Goods (e.g. a petrol tanker driver), they can, if wished, be taught only that class, together with the Core and Packages/Tanks modules. We will conduct any of the permitted course combinations, as both initial and refresher courses.

All ADR training must be conducted at an approved venue, either at our training centre in Southampton, or on-site, nationwide (subject to the facilities meeting the required minimum standards) - Call us for further details.

We pride ourselves in delivering the best course we can, consistently attaining the highest quality rating available, with excellent first-time pass rates (99.2% during 2015), and in a clean, well-equipped training room, offering:

  • Free parking
  • Free refreshments during breaks

Remember also that both initial and refresher ADR courses may be counted toward your 35 hours of periodic Driver CPC training - a maximum of 21 hours of the initial course and 7 hours of the refresher course can be used.

*Refresher courses can only be taken by candidates who have held a certificate for a minimum of four years and with no less than FIVE WEEKS until expiry – don’t leave it too late, earlier is better. Any remaining time will be added to your next certificate. Candidates may only receive training on the modules covered by an existing certificate, you cannot add to them on a Refresher course.

Our current course schedule is as follows, however, we add extra courses if there is sufficient demand, and can hold courses on your own premises if required.

Class 1 (Explosives) and Class 7 (Radioactives) training is offered on an "as-needed" basis at a suitable time to fit your requirements (including weekends) - contact us if you would like to make a booking, we will run a course even for one candidate.

Remember initial and refresher courses can count towards Driver CPC too.
