Timeframe for Sitting the Exam after Training
Candidates who have attended an app roved course must sit the associated examination within 12 months of their course . A candidate attending a refresher course must sit and pass the associ ated examination ( s ) before the ex piry date on their current certificate. Otherwise, after that date a candidate for examination must attend a full initial Basic (3 - day) and if required, a Tanker specialisation (2 - day) course before being allowed to sit the examination again. A candidate may attempt an exam twice on ly (i.e. one repeat) - after which they must attend the relevant training course again before being eligible to take a further exam.
Renewal of Driver Training Certificates
A Driver Training Certificate may be renewed at any time in the final year of the certificate for an additional 5 years extension of validity. It is recommended that candidates attend the refresher course and examination as early as possible in the 12 months prior to the expiry of their current certificate so as to allow adequate time for repeat examina tions and courses if necessary. Time remaining on a certificate is not lost by sitting early as the 5 year extension is added to the current expiry date and not from the date of the exam.
