Your requirement will depend on the mode of transport and the class or classes of dangerous goods that you intend to carry.

You must undertake the Core module, which explains the basics of ADR and includes practical exercises including; Emergency Aid, Fire and Actions to take in an emergency.

The modes of transport is divided in to 2 categories:

GOODS IN TANKS; which includes Road Tankers, De-mountable Tanks, Portable Tanks, MEGC’s, etc.

OTHER THAN IN TANKS; which includes Package Vehicles, Tippers, Skips, etc.
