As an accredited SQA Training centre we are able to provide the ADR training and examinations required to gain an ADR Vocational Training Certificate. This qualification is required by any driver carrying dangerous goods by road in the UK and Europe. We are one of the very few providers in the UK whose ADR courses are delivered by a fully-qualified DGSA.
This course is delivered in our classroom, fully in accordance with all applicable social distancing guidelines; exam results are usually generated on the same day as the exams are undertaken, which means there is typically no waiting period from the point of the exams being completed to the results coming in. Currently, successful candidates are permitted to carry dangerous goods as soon as the pass certificates have been supplied, without having to wait for the ADR Driver Training Card.
We provide initial and refresher courses to cover all hazardous classes (except 1 & 7), packages and tanks.
Our ADR courses are also currently accredited as Driver CPC courses meaning attendees accumulate up to 28 hours towards the next Driver CPC qualification.
(The Tanks module is required to claim the full 28 hours; by sitting the full course without without Tanks, 21 hours available)

The Driver CPC is for LGV and PCV drivers who drive professionally in the UK. Driver CPC courses are designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional drivers throughout their working life and are a requirement of the EU Directive 2003/59. Driver CPC is a continuous periodic training and each driver must complete 35 hours of training every 5 years.
