ADR Training Course

ADR (Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road) Training

Any goods which pose a risk to property, the environment or people are classified as dangerous goods and are assigned classifications from 1 to 9. The types of goods range from highly dangerous explosives, acids and flammables to every day products such as paints, pesticides and cleaning products.

The Carriage of Dangerous Goods by road falls under the European agreement known as ADR which regulates the movement of any dangerous goods within the UK and Europe.

All drivers responsible for carrying goods which fall under the scope, in any type of vehicle, must hold a vocational training certificate for the corresponding class of the goods being transported.
