Licence to Transport Dangerous Goods by Road [TLILIC0001]

This Nationally recognised course covers the skills and knowledge required to obtain a Dangerous Goods driver’s licence to transport Dangerous Goods by road. It covers compliance with regulatory requirements but does not address all the skills and knowledge for the transportation of Dangerous Goods. On achieving this unit and obtaining a licence, further industry specific training will be required to satisfy legislative requirements to transport Dangerous Goods.


The primary legislative requirement applicable to this Unit of Competency is the Model Subordinate Law on the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road or Rail, which is reflected in State/Territory legislation. This law, in relation to the safe transport of Dangerous Goods, references the current version of the Australian Dangerous Goods Code, the Model Act on the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road and Rail, relevant Australian Standards (AS) and relevant Work Health and Safety (WHS)/Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) legislation including licensing and assessment requirements.

Achieving this unit of competency is a necessary requirement for obtaining a licence. However, it is only one of several criteria for obtaining a Dangerous Goods driver’s licence. More information can be sourced from the Regulator in each jurisdiction regarding other criteria that applies, which can vary between States and Territories. Compliance with these requirements may be required Nationally and/or in specific jurisdictions. A Dangerous Goods driver’s licence or vehicle licence is not required for transport of intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) with a total capacity of up to and including 3000 litres, unless any IBC is filled or emptied while on a vehicle.
