PSV drivers do not need to complete a declaration form prior to departure for overseas travel

It should also be noted that France has withdrawn the requirement for a PSV driver to provide a negative test when entering from the UK.


All PSV drivers entering England from the EU must have evidence of a negative COVID test taken in the 3 days before arrival.


From 6 April, all PSV drivers entering England from abroad (except those arriving from the Common Travel Area) and who will stay in the UK for more than 2 days must be tested for COVID after arrival

The test must be taken within two days of arrival and every 3 days thereafter.


There is no requirement for a PSV driver to show evidence of having booked these tests when they arrive at the border.


Drivers who live in the UK you do not need to self-isolate during this period

Drivers must also complete a passenger locator form before they travel to the UK
