Towards the end of this period, you will need to refresh your licence.
This course will take place inside our classroom.
As we are approved for the completion of Online Exams, you are likely to receive your exam results on the same day as completion.
As well as being SQA approved, this course is also JAUPT approved, meaning that you are able to claim Driver CPC tuition from this course.

This course does not cover Class 1 (Explosive) or Class 7 (Radioactive). As these are more specialist classes, we complete these through separate courses.
During this course, we are able to cover:
- Core Module
- Class 2 – Gasses
- Class 3 – Flammable Liquid
- Class 4.1 – Flammable Solid
- Class 4.2 – Spontaneously Combustible
- Class 4.3 – Dangerous When Wet

- Class 6 – Toxic & Infectious Substances
- Class 8 – Corrosive
- Class 9 – Miscellaneous
- Up to 28 Hours of Driver CPC
If you only require certain classes, then you will not need to complete every module. For every class that you do not require, the exam fee for that module will be removed from the cost of the course, and you will also not need to be present on the course while those classes are being taught.
When booking your course, you will be able to select the classes that you require.
This course will be delivered inside the classroom.
The full ADR Initial Course takes place over five days.
Each day begins at 08:30, and typically lasts until 15:45. If you are claiming Driver CPC, then each day will instead end at 16:45.
