What to Expect

There are 9 exams in total. Initially, you will take the Core and Packages papers, followed by the 7 Classes papers. The Core paper will need to be passed to be able to gain your ADR certificate. This will be regardless of the classes passed.

As a driver, you will obtain the qualification to transport Classes 2 through 9, which include:

  • Class 2: Flammable & Non-flammable Gases

  • Class 4: Flammable Substances
  • Class 5: Oxidising Agents/Organic Peroxides
  • Class 6: Toxic & Infectious Substances
  • Class 8: Corrosive

Upon completion of the course, you will be authorized to transport goods only from the classes you have passed. Successful completion of the course will grant you a vocational license that allows you to engage in the transportation of dangerous goods for the next 5 years.

The course will be presented by qualified DGSAs who have extensive knowledge in the transportation of dangerous goods. The course duration is 3 days, with the exam taking place on the morning of the 4th day. All training will take place at our Woolpit training centre, with the exam taken online in our dedicated online testing suite.
