Petroleum Driver Passport (PDP)
All petroleum tanker drivers will need to gain a Petroleum Driver Passport (PDP) during 2014. You will need either a FULL PDP or an INTERIM PDP.
You must take the full PDP if your ADR is due to be renewed in 2014, or if you require your first ADR. If your ADR is not due for renewal during 2014, you will need to take an interim PDP. This will be valid up to the expiry date of your ADR card.
For the interim PDP, you will be given classroom training covering key content from the Industry Training Standard. You will then take a written (multiple choice) assessment, set by SQA. There is also a practical assessment in the industry sub-sector most relevant to your workload. A qualified and approved PDP assessor will assess you.
To achieve the full PDP, you will undertake PDP training and a full written (multiple choice) assessment, set by SQA. You will take this alongside your five-yearly ADR renewal training and assessment. You will also take a practical assessment with a qualified and approved PDP assessor.
After 2014, you will have to take annual classroom refresher and an annual practical assessment for your PDP to remain valid. Your record of annual training and assessment will be held on SQA’s secure system.
