Candidates that have passed will be issued with an ADR Driver Training Certificate by post.

Renewal of ADR Driver Training Certificate

The ADR Driver Training Certificate is valid for 5 years.

Under ADR regulations all certificate holders must attend a refresher course (ADR basic 1 day course/ tanker specialisation 1 day course) and sit a refresher exam(s) to be eligible for another 5 year ADR cert. 

This refresher course(s) and exam(s) can be done at any time in the last 12 months of the current ADR cert but must be completed before the expiration date. 

We recommend holders do the refresher course(s) and exam(s) early to allow for possible repeats if necessary. 

If your cert has already expired and no refresher course(s) or exam(s) have been taken then, under ADR regulations, the holder must repeat the full ADR basic training course (3 days) and/or tanker specialisation training course (2 days) before being allowed to sit the exam(s) again.

ADR Training

Candidates must contact an approved ADR training course provider and arrange to attend a basic ADR and/or tanker specialisation course before applying to sit the exam(s).

On completion of ADR training, the course provider will give attendees an exam application. The provider will complete the declaration of attendance section and confirm the candidate’s completion of the course.

ADR providers may complete this declaration on the CILT platform. 

Candidates must sit the ADR basic exam within 12 months of completion of training.
