Certificate for carrying dangerous goods (ADR)

Any vehicle which carries or transports dangerous goods is required by law to meet certain detailed technical requirements.

What is ADR

ADR is a 1957 United Nations treaty that governs transnational transport of hazardous materials. "ADR" is derived from the French name for the treaty: Accord européen relatif au transport international des marchandises Dangereuses par Route.

How to apply for an ADR road vehicle approval certificate

  • Apply online for your ADR Test on https://operator.cvrt.ie 
  • Consult with DGSA to ensure ADR examination is properly completed (e.g tank code and specical provisions code)  
  • Applications should be made no less than 10 working days before the inspection is required 
  • You will need to have passed a roadworthiness test within 40 days of the confirmed appointment date. You can also apply for your CVRT while applying for your ADR test online at https://operator.cvrt.ie 
  • Separate applications must be made for each vehicle (i.e motor vehicle, trailer, semi-trailer ) for which an ADR certificate is required

See FAQ document on ADR here.

About the ADR Test

Once you have selected your preferred ADR test centre you should note the following:

  • in the case of some vehicle types it may be necessary for vehicles to be presented with covers removed so that markings can be seen e.g battery master switch
  • If you are unable to keep an appointment for an examination you should contact the test centre as soon as possible as fees may be forfeited for late cancellation or no shows 

Fee

The cost of an ADR certificate is €184.51 ( This charge is split between the RSA administration fee of €91.50 and the relevant ADR test centre fee of €93.01 )
