Driving a van over the festive period? Remember…

16th Dec 2022

The end of the year is here and as we all know it gets incredibly busy! But there’s some crucial things not to forget whilst you’re out on the road – especially when driving a van the DVSA remind us.

A recent DVSA newsletter said: “During this festive period, we want to remind you to make sure you are following domestic drivers’ hours rules.

Don’t be tempted to exceed the limits and drive tired. The rules are there to keep you and other road users safe.”

We couldn’t agree more! If you’d like to brush up on the rules around drivers hours not only vans but all commercial vehicles you can find everything you need here.
