About the course


Training in the carriage of dangerous goods by road is a legal requirement for all persons involved in their transport.

Not all drivers require an "ADR Licence" however; many drivers transport smaller quantities of dangerous goods which do not require full ADR vocational training.

This version of our course is specifically aimed at those drivers, typically for the transport of dangerous goods packed as limited quantities and excepted quantities, and packaged goods transported below the ADR load threshold exemption of 1.1.3.6. It is not intended for drivers transporting goods of Class 1 or Class 7 (see Class 1 training here).

This course provides you with all of the necessary information to meet your legal training obligations.

The course is entirely online and allows you to work through at your own pace.

Downloadable guidance is included with the course for you to reference back to at a later date, lessons are accompanied by interactive exercises and the provisions are explained clearly by video with accompanying examples.
