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 Driver Training Card 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.

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.

ADR training can be arranged and conducted at any 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.

Our Southampton training centre is a clean, well-equipped training room, offering:

  • Free parking
  • Free refreshments during breaks
  • On-site café serving a range of good food
  • Full accessible under the Disability Discrimination Act

Remember also that both initial and refresher ADR courses may be counted toward your 35 hours of periodic Driver CPC training - a maximum of 28 hours of the initial course (provided the tanks module is also taken, 21hrs only can be counted if not) 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.
