ADR - Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road
A driver transporting dangerous goods by road in most tankers, large tank containers, in bulk or in packages over a given amount, can only do so if in possession of an ADR Driver Training Qualification. The qualification, in the form of an ADR Driver Training Card can be obtained for either ‘Packaged Goods’ or for ‘Tanks’, by successful completion of an approved ADR Dangerous Goods training course. In order to gain the Driver Training Card, candidates must pass examinations in a minimum of three modules; ie. the core module - either packaged goods or tank module - and at least one of the nine hazard classes.
To gain a Driver Training Certificate the driver must attend a Department for Transport approved course and pass multiple choice exams.
The Packaged Goods Course lasts for 3.5 days (if all classes are taken) and covers the following modules: Core, Packages and 7classes.
The Tank module can be taken as a 1.5 day extension to a Packaged Goods course or on a stand-alone basis. If taken separately, the following modules are needed: Core, Tanks plus a minimum of one Hazardous Class.
The ADR Driver Training Certificate has a 5 year life and can be refreshed any when from the end of year 4.
