ADR Training Teesside
In the UK, legislation commonly known as ADR covers the training of drivers carrying dangerous goods in tanks and packages. Anyone who drives a vehicle carrying dangerous goods, regardless of the size of the vehicle, must be in possession of an ADR Vocational Training Certificate (VTC) obtained by attending a course at an Approved Centre.
ADR Teesside Ltd. is an SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority) Approved Centre and is one of the North East's leading providers of ADR Training. Through our parent company Teesside Transport Training Ltd we can also offer Driver CPC training.
The type of VTC you need will depend on the type of dangerous goods you are transporting. More details about ADR Training >
Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) is being introduced across the European Union to improve and maintain the knowledge and skills of professional drivers throughout their entire working life.
From September 2009 anyone who drives an LGV or a coach for a living must hold a Driver CPC.
New drivers must obtain the Initial Qualification along with their vocational licence to enable them to drive professionally.
Experienced drivers have up to five years to obtain and maintain their Driver CPC by undertaking 35 hours of training every 5 years. This is known as Periodic Training.
Did you know that from September 2009 ADR Training can be counted towards your 35 hours Driver CPC Periodic Training qualification? More details about Driver CPC >
