  1. Is there an exam involved?

    Comments Off on Is there an exam involved?

    Yes, a formal exam follows each of the modules required which is marked externally by the SQA.

    There are a total of 6 exam papers (5 if you are only completing the course in packages). Each paper is multiple-choice with four possible answers.

    The exams are divided into the following categories:

     Number of QuestionsPass Mark
    Classes 2, 3, 6, 83625
    Classes 4, 5, 92417
    Common Characteristics2014

    You are credited with any exam pass that you achieve for up to 16 weeks following your course, i.e. if you pass 5 out of 6 exams, you would only have to return to re-sit the failed exam.

  2. How long does the course last and what does it cover?

    Comments Off on How long does the course last and what does it cover?

    The initial ADR course lasts for five days and covers goods in tanks and packages of classes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9. Refresher candidates can also attend this course to extend their current qualifications.

    Should you only require the qualification in packages, the course runs for 3.5 days in total.

    If you have specific requirements, we can customise a course to suit. More information can be found here.

  3. Who needs ADR training?

    Comments Off on Who needs ADR training?

    Under the European Agreement on ADR, drivers of vehicles with tanks and certain tank components, and some drivers of vehicles carrying dangerous goods in packages, must hold a special vocational certificate of training, usually referred to as an ADR training certificate or a Driver Training Certificate (DTC).

    ADR training is not only for vocational drivers (those holding category C licences). Drivers’ with only category B licences (car and van) may require ADR training in order to transport small hazardous packages.

    Since the regulations were changed in 2004, more people involved in the carriage of these types of goods were given responsibilities and require awareness training in the operations that they undertake; these people include loaders, handlers, consigners and consignees.
