ADR Driver Training, Birmingham, West Midlands

Comprehensive Hazardous Goods Training

If you’re involved in the transportation of dangerous goods (Hazardous Goods) falling under the purview of the UK CDG (Carriage of Dangerous Goods) Regulations, you must possess an ADR Driver Training Certificate.

Action Training is a leading provider of ADR training, adhering to the ADR regulations, which mandate classroom training and ADR exams set by the prestigious Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).

Classroom-Based Training and ADR Exams

Please note that ADR training must be conducted in a classroom setting, and successful completion requires passing a series of written multiple-choice examinations. It is crucial to emphasise that the Department of Transport strictly prohibits any form of assistance during these exams.

Accessibility for Learners with Special Needs

If you have any learning difficulties, it is crucial to notify us at least 4 weeks before the course commencement. We can assist you in coordinating with the SQA by providing the necessary documentation, such as medical reports from doctors, for their consideration and decision.
