Dangerous Goods Driver Licence Training

TLILIC0001 Licence to transport dangerous goods by road.

(Transport and Logistics Training Package TLI10).

(approval SA DGDL FIRE TRAINING 2/2014)

Fire Training and Safety Services is Registered Training Organisation and an approved provider (SA DGDL FIRE TRAINING 2/2017) of the training program which is a requirement for the application to Safework SA for a Dangerous Goods Driver Licence (DG Licence).

This course is conducted as a Unit of Competency (TLILIC0001 Licence to transport dangerous goods by road) from a National Training Package.

The course is conducted utilising the 7.5 edition of the Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by road or rail and the South Australia, Dangerous Substances (Dangerous Goods Transport) Regulations 2008, and successfully completing the course leads to applying for a Dangerous Goods Driver Licence.

To gain a DG Licence in SA, participants must hold a SA Drivers licence.

Driver licence means a licence (including a probationary and a conditional licence but not including a provisional or learner’s licence or permit) issued under the Motor Vehicles Act 1959 or a law of another State or a Territory of the commonwealth that corresponds to that Act authorising the driver to drive a road vehicle.

We are required to physically identify each participant and therefore will require to see, and take a copy of, your Drivers Licence for you to participate in this course.

Where you may have committed certain road traffic offences Safework SA may preclude you from being granted a Dangerous Goods Driver Licence. SafeWork SA can refuse to issue a Dangerous Goods Licence if a driver’s recent driving history is unsatisfactory. SafeWork SA make that decision.

If you wish to discuss your driving record with SafeWork SA prior to enrolling into a course, please contact the Department for Information and Administrative Services of SafeWork SA on (08) 83030420.

The training program changed with the introduction of the 7th edition of the Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by road or rail (ADG7 Code) in 2010.

The same 2 day program must now be completed for both initial and renewal licence applications – there is no longer a “refresher” course option available.
