Important Notice

ADR training under ADR regulations has to be in the classroom and involves ADR exams set by the SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority).

Please Note:- To gain the certificate a driver must pass a series of written multiple choice examinations.

The Department of Transport stipulates that the driver must do these examinations without any assistance. If you suffer from leaning difficulties you will need to give SQA 4 weeks advanced notice prior to course commencement through us. We will need copies of Doctors and/or medical reports and will need to disclose the information contained to SQA for their consideration and decision.
