Additional Information

ADR Course Info

ADR Training and moving dangerous goods by road is governed by international regulations and is strictly policed. Most European countries are signed up to the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). Each country that complies with ADR implements specific safety measures through its own national legislation.

The purpose of ADR is to ensure that dangerous goods (including clinical and other dangerous waste) being carried by road can cross international borders freely, as long as goods, vehicles and drivers comply with its provisions. ADR has been in force since 1968 and is administered by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). It’s updated every 2 years to take account of technological advances.

Driver ADR training certificates required under ADR

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, sometimes referred to informally as an ‘ADR Certificate’.

All drivers of vehicles carrying dangerous goods must attend an approved basic ADR training course. These courses equip drivers with information and tools so that they:

  • are aware of the hazards in the carriage of dangerous goods
  • can take steps to reduce the likelihood of an incident taking place
  • can take all necessary measures for their own safety and that of the public and the environment to limit the effects of any incident that does occur
  • have individual practical experience of the actions they will need to take

Course Reviews

After 24 years service in the Armed Forces. 2 Start have been able to provide and deliver the skills required for my next career in road haulage. Prices are competitive and the training is executed in a professional but friendly manner that for me ensured successful completion of my ADR course, CPC and Class 2. Many thanks to Paul, Daisy, Ken, Robin, Don and all the rest of your team. See you again soon. Mickey

Southampton

Excellent training provider. 5*. Passed my class 1 and now ADR.

Worthing

I highly recommend 2 Start training. Due to having some spare time on my hands I decided to take some courses to improve my chances of being offered a different variety of work. I have just completed my HIAB training, ADR course, Moffett and counterbalance forklift course. I successfully passed them all. The quality and standard of training is excellent and I am planning to do my slingers course although since passing the courses I have already have had many of offers of work so will now need to find the time! Many thanks to Alan, Paul and Joe for the training and Daisy for her efficient and prompt organisation of the courses.
