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 issued by the SQA on behalf of the Dept. for Transport.

The qualification, in the form of an ADR Driver Training Certficate, can be obtained for either ‘Packaged Goods’ or for ‘Tanks’, or both, following successful completion of an approved ADR Dangerous Goods training course.

To gain the Driver Training Certificate, candidates must pass multiple choice 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.

The Packaged Goods Course lasts for 3.5 days (if all classes are taken) and covers the following modules: Core, Packages and 7 classes.

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 from the end of year 4. Refresher training must take place before the final 6 weeks of the certificate’s life.
