Our ADR training course

If you intend to transport any chemical or hazardous goods by road, in packages or tankers, or are involved in the movement of dangerous goods, it’s a legal requirement to have specialist ADR certification.  Our SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority) approved ADR course covers everything you need to gain your ADR licence.

Course content

We offer the full range of ADR training – including initial and refresher courses, as well as core, packages and tankers for the following classes:

  • Class 2 – Gases
  • Class 3 – Flammable liquids
  • Class 4 – Flammable solids
  • Class 5 – Oxidising substances and organic peroxides
  • Class 6 – Toxic substances
  • Class 8 – Corrosive substances
  • Class 9 – Miscellaneous dangerous substances

The package section of our ADR course covers the transportation of all packaged, dangerous goods, bulk goods (loose solids) in Limited Quantity (LQ) or Excepted Quantity (EQ), and covers everything you need to gain a thorough understanding of load threshold limits.

Teesside LGV Training also offers an ADR General Awareness course, aimed at people who handle dangerous goods, or transport under the load threshold.  These courses can be tailored to your needs as required.

Our SQA-approved ADR courses:

  • are flexible.  They can take place at our own SQA-approved training centre in Middlesbrough, or at your own site – if it meets the SQA specific requirements.  They can also be spread over a combination of full consecutive days or consecutive weekends. 
  • count towards your CPC training because they are approved by JAUPT 
  • vary in length, depending on whether you choose our Vocational Training Certification, our full 3.5 day ADR course, an additional 7-hour tanker course, a refresher or simply an ADR awareness course 
  • can be tailored to your exact needs – you may not need to complete all 9 classes of training  
  • include free, unlimited tea and coffee 
  • include your exam – with our online ADR examination, you’ll receive your official result at the end of the course

DGSA Consultancy and training courses

Since the EU directive came into force, if your business is involved in the transportation, distribution or loading of dangerous goods by road, you need to appoint a Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor.

At Teesside LGV Training, you can choose to use our Consultancy Service and appoint us as your specialist DGSA advisor.  Alternatively,  we can train a member of your own team through our 5-day course to pass their DGSA exam and be your own in-house DGSA Advisor.
