Anyone who is planning on driving a vehicle carrying dangerous goods must, by law, obtain and hold a valid ADR licence. An ADR licence is the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road, which most European countries have signed up to, each country that complies with ADR has introduced its own safety precautions through its national legislation.

ADR ensures that dangerous goods transported by road can pass over international borders freely. As long as the cargo, vehicles and drivers all comply with its rules and regulations. A driver can remain compliant by ensuring they have a valid and up-to-date ADR licence.
