DfT simplifies drivers' hours and working time advice

Posted by AndrewT on 30th Mar 2017

The DfT has attempted to improve its guidance on EU drivers’ hours and working time by simplifying the advice. The new and updated guidance is available on the DfT website in a 23 page document. It was produced to help HGV drivers better understand how EU drivers’ hours and working time rules work together. The document provides examples of when weekly / daily rest should be taken and explains the various tachograph mode switches. It should make it clear how much driving can be done in single day. For further information download the EU drivers’ hours infographic or see the full DfT guidance on drivers’ hours rules.
