Drivers' hours: rules and guidance

26 Jan 2021

Rules for lorry, bus and coach drivers on how many hours you can drive, exemptions from the rules, and when the rules can be relaxed temporarily.

 

Guidance is updated to reflect on temporary relaxation of the enforcement of the retained EU drivers’ hours rules

 

EU drivers’ hours and tachograph rules still apply to journeys between the EU and UK, or wholly within the EU or UK.

 

AETR rules apply to journeys outside of the EU, including journeys involving Norway and Switzerland.

 

There are temporary relaxations to drivers hours rules because of Coronavirus (Covid-19)

 

Check the guidance and stay up to date:
