ADR Training - ADR Training Courses

ADR Training Courses

Enterprise Transport Training are one of the UK’s largest providers of both classroom-based and practical driver training.

From our launch in Manchester in 1997, we have grown to occupy 30 venues covering a large proportion of the UK, with more planned.

To reflect changing technologies, working practices and candidate preferences ADR training is now delivered remotely, with Candidates only being required to attend the venue for exam day. Remote training started during the Pandemic and proved so effective and popular that SQA made the decision that it should continue.

Weekday ADR courses (both initial and refresher) are held regularly at most centres.

Weekend courses are held on a more 'ad hoc' basis.

The organisation boasts 12 qualified ADR instructors enabling us to satisfy the most demanding of customer requirements. Four of the instructors hold the more advanced Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor (DGSA) qualification enabling them to both train DGSA candidates or act as a Specialist Consultant.

Any driver involved in the transport of dangerous goods within the UK and Europe is required, by law, to hold an ADR Driver Training Certificate. A certificate can be obtained for packaged goods, tanks, or both and is valid for 5 years.

All courses are offered at competitive prices and can count for up to 28 hours of periodic CPC training, making them an economical choice for any driver. Whether taking an ADR course for the first time or renewing your certificate, our SQA approved courses are perfectly suited to your needs.

The full 5-day course covers core, 7 classes, packages and tanks. A shorter (3.5 day) course is also available, excluding the tanks module. Candidates must pass multiple-choice exams in core, all classes and packaged goods or tanks to gain their certificate.

Refresher courses are available for drivers in the last 12 months of their ADR licence. The shorter course comprises 2 days of remote training with examinations on day 3. Refresher training is also eligible for CPC (max 14 hours).

On-site training can be arranged for clients with sufficient candidate numbers.
