Driving vehicles carrying dangerous goods requires a special administrative authorisation, known as an ADR dangerous goods permit.
The ADR is an agreement between the member states of the European Union that regulates the transport of dangerous goods. This agreement establishes the obligation to have an ADR licence for all drivers who transport this type of goods, for example, explosives, radioactive materials, etc.
This type of licence is valid for five years, so if you are going to need it for longer, you can renew it, thus extending its validity in five-year periods.
Extensions are for 5 years from the time of renewal, and the documentation for renewal must be submitted to the JPT no later than the same day it expires or the following day, when the last day is a non-working day. It is advisable to renew the licence during the year in which it expires, as the extension period starts to run from the moment the renewal is processed.
It is important to bear in mind that a goods licence can be renewed as many times as you wish, but once it has expired, it can no longer be renewed, so you will have to obtain it again.
These renewals involve taking a refresher course and then passing a written test on the subject matter and can be linked to as many renewals as you wish. In order to take the test that allows you to obtain the renewal of your ADR licence, you must have the dangerous goods licence you wish to renew in force.
