What happens after I book the course?

  • You will receive a booking confirmation and VAT invoice.
  • Prior to the course, we’ll email you if you are the learner, to find a little bit about you, the type of job you do and the organisation you work for. We’ll also send you a short quiz to establish what you already know about dangerous goods.
  • Your ADR manuals will be sent to you two weeks before the start of the course.

On the course

  • Whether you have selected the classroom or virtual classroom option, both take 5 days. It is an intensive course, so it is important that you attend each day and turn up on time.
  • Other than that, it is on us to make sure you understand the content and are confident going into the exam


  • As soon as the course finishes, we will send you a link to a mock exam. It is the result of this which we use as the basis for your 1:1 coaching session with your tutor
  • We will also send you additional revision materials which you can use as you see fit – gaps in a learner’s knowledge are as individual as learners themselves, so we help you prepare accordingly

The Exams

  • You need to pass three exams to qualify as a DGSA: Core, All Classes, Road
  • The exams you sit are ‘open-book’. You use the ADR manuals (and other texts) to answer the questions presented
  • You don’t need to remember what is in ADR; it’s more a test of how to find the correct information
