Could this verb be a Form VIII?

Form VI is correct. The original form of the word is تدارك (tadaaraka)(See 68:49:3) but the "ta" has been assimilated into the "dal" for ease of pronunciation because of the proximity of the articulation points (makhraj) of the two letters. Form VIII would be "iddaraka" if it existed (with a short vowel fatha, not an alif, after the dal).
