Compliance Advice

In England and Wales in 2011, VOSA (now DVSA) issued £2.5m in fixed penalties and deposits and 3,178 convictions were for HGV drivers’ hours and infringement of tachograph rules. All transport operators have legal responsibilities for the actions of their drivers in maintaining compliance with drivers’ hours and working time regulations.  Failure to comply with legislation can result in heavy fines, prosecution and the restriction or loss of the company operating licence.
