There are EU drivers’ hours and working time rules which apply to drivers of large goods vehicles and passenger-carrying vehicles.
This guidance has been produced by the Department of Transport with industry stakeholders (including trade associations and trade unions) to help drivers better understand how the drivers’ hours and working time rules work together.
This guidance is not a substitute for the current full guidance documents on drivers’ hours and working time.
This simplified guidance was drafted following a recommendation in a report from a stakeholder (trade associations and unions) working group.
