ADR Training


ADR courses are required for any driver who carries hazardous materials in any vehicles.  We offer these courses at our centres in West Midlands or on customer premises.

All drivers must pass module one – the Core Module, regardless of the type of vehicle they will drive or the chemicals they will carry.  They must then pass either module two (tanks) or module three (packaged goods), or both if they wish.  They can then choose from any combination of the classes, modules four to twelve, depending on the class of chemical they wish to carry.  

The ADR training programme incorporates 21 Hours (Core/ Packages) or 28 Hours (Core/ Packages/ Tankers) worth of the Driver CPC training hours.   ADR Certificate & ID Card is issued by SQA and is valid for 5 years.  Refresher ADR Training Must be taken 6-8 weeks before ADR licence expires.
