All drivers of vehicles carrying dangerous goods, must attend a Department for Transport approved dangerous goods and hazardous training course in order to be legally qualified to transport dangerous loads, a leading training provider has advised.
Driver Link Training, one of the North West’s largest Transport Training companies says ADR Training is simple, when you understand how it works. Firstly, you have to do the ADR (Dangerous Goods) Core Class, then you decide how are you going to carry the hazardous goods, is it in a Tank, a Package or both?
ADR is then broken down in to 9 Classes, each Class represents different products, eg, class 3 is for fuel. You would then decide which class you need to take – the most common route is 7 classes, excluding 1 & 7.
