Commercial drivers face new fines over their hours

A number of rules are going to be changed affecting lorry, bus and coach drivers. Those that drive tired will be fined for each time they've done it in the last 28 days. As well as this, where drivers rest is also going to be put under scrutiny.

At the moment, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) can fine drivers up to £300 if they’re caught breaking the following rules:

  • Offences committed that day
  • Ongoing offences, like manipulating tachograph records, which record drivers’ hours.
