Fantastic News

The CILT & HSA will allow training providers to accept non-Irish driver training certificate holders to refrehser driver training in Ireland.

This means that drivers who currently hold non-Irish  ADR / HazChem Driver training Certificates can refesh their certificates in Ireland.


Unfortunatley this only applies to certificates issued covering the same classes covered in Ireland

British certificates may be accepted; but only those covering Class 2-6, 8 and 9.

As warned; short cuts dont shorten the journey, they simply add to the end what we didn’t do at the beginining.

We look forward to seeing you on a upcoming training course.

Reminder of Extension Expiry date

Just a quick reminder –

ADR Driver training Certicicates and DGSA certificates that expired between 1st March 2020 and 1st February 2021 have until 28th of February 2021 to renew their qualification under Multilateral Agreement M330
