Petroleum Drivers Passport (PDP)

PDP training ensures all tanker drivers have common knowledge and achieve a high level of competence in loading, driving and offloading of fuel tankers.

Designed to sit alongside existing regulations, with a 5 year renewal cycle in line with ADR training and annual refresher requirements.

Driver PDP is delivered in two parts, firstly theory training/assessment which Wallace can provide at Borehamwood. 

And the second part, the practical training must be completed within four months of passing PDP theory and would be provided by an employer who has access to transporting standard commercial fuel loads. 

The cost of PDP theory is £138 inc VAT & SQA exam fee.

If you already hold a current ADR then your Driver PDP Theory can be arranged as a 1 day Top-Up course to gain your qualification.

Testimonials

After a bit of research, I ended up choosing Wallace and I'm glad I did. My first phone call was very informative and I had only to choose when to start the training. Got all the books from them, studied everything and passed my theory test first time. Went to do some practical training with Gerry the instructor and got my skills polished to a very high standard. Anticipate, not react. The best advice I could ever get. Passed my practical first time and also the following CPC theory and practical tests. If someone asks me where to go for a truck licence, my answer is 1000 times Wallace School of Transport. They care for you as if you were family. That counts more than anything.

Mr Augusto Barale

I passed the practical test first time and this is undoubtedly due to the professional and supportive manner in which I was instructed. Without this, I have no doubt that my progress wouldn't have been so quick or productive. Please once again pass my sincere thanks onto both the administrative staff and Michael himself.

Chris Bridger Student Paramedic

We have been very pleased with the help and assistance and standard of training we have received from your team. I will be in touch shortly to make arrangements for our new trainees.
