ADR Dangerous Goods Training Course Overview.
A driver transporting dangerous goods by road in most tankers, large tank containers, in bulk or in packages over a given amount, can only do so if in possession of an ADR Driver Training Qualification.
The qualification, in the form of an ADR Driver Training Certificate can be obtained for either ‘Packaged Goods’ or for ‘Tanks’, or both, following successful completion of an approved ADR Dangerous Goods training course.
