Take the dangerous goods driver test

Service Description

Dangerous goods can only be transported by road under certain conditions. The transportation of dangerous goods is regulated by the Dangerous Goods Ordinance for Road, Rail and Inland Waterways (GGVSEB) and the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (abbreviation ADR, French for Accord européen relatif au transport international des marchandises dangereuses par route).

Drivers who transport dangerous goods by road must always be in possession of an ADR certificate (as defined in 8.2.1 ADR).
ADR certificate:

The ADR certificate is issued to you by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) after successful participation in a training course at a recognized organizer and subsequent passing of an examination and is limited to 5 years. The examination is conducted by the IHK and is taken in writing. The prerequisite for the examination is the complete participation in a training course recognized by the IHK. Admission to the examination for an advanced course can only take place if the participant has previously passed the examination for the basic course. To renew the ADR certificate, again for a limited period of time, a further training course must be attended and an examination passed. The validity date of the ADR certificate is extended by five years if it is passed.
