ADR Training and Dangerous Goods Awareness
Covid 19 update
Multilateral Agreement M330 dated 3/11/2020 states
By derogation from the provisions of the first paragraph of 220.127.116.11.2 of ADR all driver training certificates the validity of which ends between 1 March 2020 and 1 February 2021 remain valid until 28 February 2021. These certificates shall be renewed for five years if the driver furnishes proof of participation in refresher training in accordance with 18.104.22.168 of ADR and has passed an examination in accordance with 22.214.171.124 of ADR before 1 March 2021. The new period of validity shall begin with the original date of expiry of the document to be renewed.
Drivers of vehicles with tanks and certain tank components, and some drivers of vehicles carrying dangerous goods in packages must hold a vocational certificate of training known as ADR. Some drivers carrying limited quantities of Dangerous goods may attend a Danger Goods Awareness course instead.
ADR (Accord Dangereux Routier) formally, the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) is a 1957 United Nations treaty that governs transnational transport of hazardous materials.
All drivers of vehicles carrying dangerous goods must attend an approved basic training course.
The purpose of the course is to equip drivers with information 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 the 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.
At Martin’s Driver Training we offer courses in all categories of hazardous goods with the exception of explosives and radioactives.
Our instructor will ensure that the course is informative, but also fun; to ensure that you get the best from the course. The course is classroom based, with lectures and practical exercises.
In order to get your ADR certificate and ADR card you will need to sit a number of exams, during the course. The exams are multiple choice and are conducted online. The exam results will be available at the end of your course or on the following day, so there is no need to wait weeks for your exam results or your ADR card.
Please be aware that the training and tests can only be conducted in the English language.
During the Covid lockdown, courses are taking pace online via zoom, then you will be required to attend our office in order to sit the exams (the classroom has limited numbers and candidates will be socially distanced)
