Changes to ADR Certificates & OCRS system
The ADR certificate is changing format from paper to card. These changes are due to take place in September 2012 and will also see certificates issued by the Scottish Qualifications Authority on behalf of DfT instead of the DVLA as currently in place.
The ADR Driver Training Certificate is valid for five years from the date of issue and maybe extended during the last 12 months for a further 5 years if the holder undertakes and passes appropriate refresher training and examinations.
Further changes this summer will include checks carried out by VOSA examiners on the rules surrounding the carriage of dangerous goods by road and will be included the Operator Compliance Risk Scores calculation for the first time.
The recalculation ofOperator Compliance Risk Scores will include any ADR enforcement events including clear encounters from over the past 3 years.
