ADR regulations and training are designed to make sure that dangerous goods can be safely transported by road, and transporting them is only performed by competent and ADR compliant drivers and vehicles.
The European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) has been around since 1968 and is overseen by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). It is reviewed every two years to ensure that it still applies to new advances in technology and is strictly policed.
Most European countries are signed up to ADR and will implement their own safety measures through national legislation, which must be obeyed when crossing into or through those countries.
These courses will enable you to transport dangerous goods safely and to identify any practices that could lead to unsafe circumstances. If you need more information on which level training you need, our team are able to advise you on taking the correct ADR training course at our Southampton centre.

To gain your certification, you will need to pass a training course at a registered centre, such at 2 Start Ltd, ensuring that the course you have taken covers everything you will need for future transport loads. To help with this, we have a range of different packages available.
You must get your certification before you transport any dangerous goods by road. The certification is valid for five years and must be renewed before continuing to drive.
