ADR – Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road
Here at Chartwise, we teach the Carriage of Dangerous Goods ADR module as part of our regular programme of training.
Due to the growing demand for the qualification, we run a full ADR course at least once a month.
As such, our dedicated ADR educators stay busy delivering first-class training in multi-accredited facilities in Team Valley, Gateshead.
Do I need it?
The bottom line is: all drivers carrying the goods which fall under the designated scope, in any type of vehicle, must hold a vocational training certificate for the corresponding class of the goods being transported.
ADR Costs & Options
In order to gain the ADR qualification you must pass the core exam, at least one class exam and either the Packages or the Tanks exam, depending on what your job requires you to carry the dangerous goods in. Our advisors are always happy to talk through the options available, and to help you decide exactly which exams you need to complete.
So, find a date that is convenient for you and get registered; we can then decide exactly which days you need to attend, and which exams you need to sit.
Some of the more common ADR examination costs and options are:
- Full ADR with Tanks & Packages (excluding specialist classes 1 & 7) – £420 (inc VAT and exams)
- Full ADR without Tanks (excluding specialist classes 1 & 7) – £340 (inc VAT and exams)
- ADR with Packages and Class 2 only (Flammable Gasses) – £240 (inc VAT and exams)
Because the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of our week-long ADR course are classed as Modules 6, 7 and 8 of Driver CPC training, many drivers choose to complete them as such. Therefore, a full day of studying the Carriage of Dangerous Goods, for example, counts as 7 hours towards your CPC training.
