ADR Certificate holders to be eligible for CPC Module 2 credit in one CPC Cycle


    If you are the holder of an ADR Cert, you may be able to apply for an exemption from attending Module 2 of the driver CPC training cycle. While this will likely be of more interest to truck drivers, in some cases it will be of help to qualified bus  and coach drivers.

    • Are you a professional driver with a valid ADR certificate?
    • Will your ADR certificate be valid on your Certificate of Professional Competency (CPC) card expiry date?

    If so, then you may be eligible to apply for CPC Module 2 equivalency and you need not attend Module 2 in the current CPC cycle.

    The RSA has evaluated the ADR training, which is a highly intensive training that focuses on safety standards while transporting dangerous goods and the ADR training has significant overlap with CPC Module 2.


    To be eligible for applying for equivalency in lieu of Module 2, professional drivers would have to meet the following criteria:

    1. At the end of a CPC cycle, drivers must have completed a minimum of 28/35 hours of CPC approved training and must hold a valid ADR certificate.
    2. Your ADR certificate must still be valid on the CPC card expiry date.
    3. If you are granted equivalency for Module 2 in a 5-year CPC cycle, you will have to attend Module 2 in the next CPC cycle even if you hold a valid ADR.

    If you believe you are eligible for equivalency, please submit your application at least 6 months before your CPC card expiry date using the below form.
