ADR Dangerous Goods Tankers

Drivers transporting dangerous goods by road in bulk or in tankers over a given amount, can only do so if in possession of an ADR Driver Training Qualification.

In order to gain the Driver Training Certificate, candidates must pass examinations in a minimum of three modules; ie. the core module in tankers and at least one of the nine hazard classes.

A driver currently holding an ADR Driver Training Certificate can, at any time from the end of the 4th year, undertake a refresher course allowing them to obtain a further 5 year ADR Driver Training Certificate. The refresher training should be carried out at least 3 months before the licence expiry date. Petroleum Driver Passport (PDP) is now also available.

There are a number of options:

  • ADR  Initial Core and Tanks only (Usually 3.5 days usually third week of the month) course is £(please ring), plus exam fees (Initial & core, then £20 per class, minimum 3)
  • ADR Initial Core,  Packages and Tanks (usually 5 days, usually first week of the month) course is £(please ring), plus exam fees (Initial, Core & Tanks, then£20 per class, minimum 3)
  • If you already hold ADR Core, the tanks module can be taken on it’s own, it costs £(please ring), per candidate and takes place on Thursdays and Fridays lasting 1.5 days.
  • The ADR Refresher (Usually 3 days) is £(please ring), plus exam fees (£20 per class)

The above courses can count for 21 hours (or up to 28 for the full ADR Packs & Tanks) towards the Driver CPC for a small admin fee of £20 per 7 hours, including the appropriate upload costs.
