Sandy Arthur Training Services is an S.Q.A. (Scottish Qualifications Authority) approved training centre. We run ADR courses most weeks of the year from our Limavady Training Centre. We offer all modules and classes (including ADR radioactive and ADR explosives). We can also deliver ADR training “in company” (subject to premises meeting SQA criteria) if required.

Who should attend this training course?

The course should be attended by all drivers requiring an ADR Certificate to fulfil the requirement under the legislation for the Carriage of Dangerous Substances by Road, in tankers, tank containers and packages.

Key Benefits

  • On successful completion of the ADR examinations, SQA in partnership with DVLA will issue a licence as proof of competence.
  • Delegates will be able to understand the dangers associated with the transportation of dangerous substances in tankers, tank containers and packages.
  • Delegates will know how to act in an emergency


5 Day Initial / 3 Day Refresher

The type of VTC (Vocational Training Certificate) you need will depend greatly on which class/es of dangerous goods you are transporting. As well as having to sit each relevant dangerous class you must also sit the Core Module and the Packaged Goods Module and/or the Tanker Module. The modules and classes are as follows:

ADR Core Module:

1.5 days: Mandatory subject – covers such things as first aid, fire precautions, emergency procedures etc. All drivers requiring ADR must pass this module.

ADR Package Module:

1/2 day: Mandatory if you are transporting dangerous goods by road in anything other than a tanker, i.e. flatbed, box vehicle, tipper etc.

ADR Tank Module:

1.5 days Mandatory if you are transporting dangerous goods in a tank (e.g. petrol tanker driver)


All classes covered (1-9) Explosives, Gases, Flammable Liquids, Flammable Solids, Oxidising Substances, Toxic, Radioactive, Corrosives and Miscellaneous.

A standard ADR course run by Sandy Arthur Training on any given week will include the Core, Packages and Tank Awareness / Modules and all 9 classes except 1&7 (Explosives and Radioactive).

Explosives ADR

We are one of only a few organisations that deliver ADR Explosive courses. We run courses every 6 weeks from our Limavady HQ. If you need only class 1 you must complete the Core Module first.


You must pass exams for the modules and classes you require. The exams are in a multi choice format and the pass mark required is 70%. If in the unlikely event you have failed a module or class, you only need to come back and sit the module or class that you have failed.
