HGV drivers’ hours

EU rules strictly control the hours drivers can be on duty and or at the wheel. While the rules may be complicated, it is important that drivers understand them as a failure to comply not only creates a real risk on the road, it can result in a fixed penalty of up to £200, a graduated deposit of up to £900 or a summons to court.

For an explanation of the rules for drivers’ hours and the keeping of records, please visit VOSA’s information about rules and regulations.
