ADR Training

COVID-19 update: The Department for Transport has confirmed that, due to the present Coronavirus situation, the validity of all ADR certificates due to expire between 1 March 2020 and 1 November 2020 will be extended until 30 November 2020. However, if your ADR certificate expires during this period, you will need to attend ADR refresher training and pass an examination before 1 December 2020.

Provided you pass this examination before 1 December 2020, your ADR qualification will be extended for five years, starting from the date that your current certificate would originally have expired.  

For example, if your ADR certificate was due to expire on 22 May 2020, providing you attend ADR refresher training and pass your examination before 1 December 2020, your new ADR certificate will be issued to you, with an expiry date of 22 May 2025.

Novadata's ADR training courses are designed for those who handle or administer goods classified as dangerous, as well as transporting them by driving the vehicles on which they are loaded.

ADR refers to the European Agreement which also enacts the UK's Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road Act. All drivers who transport dangerous goods must hold a Vocational Training Certificate issued by SQA. This is required by UK regulations implementing the relevant EU directive. Novadata's ADR training courses are approved by the Department for Transport and provide drivers with the knowledge they need to be aware of the hazards inherent in carrying dangerous goods and how to protect themselves and those around them. Novadata is one of the few UK training organisations to offer training in Class 1 explosives and Class 7 radioactives.

You can purchase ADR/DGSA 2017 Manual Volumes 1&2 from us. Check out our extensive range of ADR/ HAZCHEM products too.

Please note: because we occasionally become oversubscribed on some courses, booking online does not necessarily guarantee your place(s) on the course and is subject to confirmation. If places are available, you will receive written confirmation by email or post. In the event this course is over-subscribed, Novadata will contact you as soon as reasonably practicable to discuss alternative courses and dates.

Please also note: Due to the current Coronavirus situation, our classroom-based courses are not available at present. If you already have a booking for a course, we will notify you of new dates as soon as we are advised that it is safe to resume training. If you do not have an existing booking, please ensure that we have your email address so that we can notify you as soon as our courses are available to book.
