DVSA - Coronavirus (COVID-19) update: Take extra care as England's roads get busier

29 May 2020

 

England's roads are becoming busier as people begin to return to the roads.

Commercial drivers are being advised to take extra care and remember many drivers on England’s roads have not used their vehicles since the lockdown.

Key advice

If you are a lorry, bus or coach driver you should continue to:

  • stay alert to those around you, especially in blind spots
  • carry out your walkaround checks to ensure your vehicle is roadworthy
  • check the position of mirrors
  • make sure your loads are secure
  • follow the Highway Code advice for your type of vehicle.

It is in everyone’s interest to keep the roads as safe as possible over the coming days and weeks.

Thank you for your vital work keeping the country fed and supplied, or ensuring those who cannot work from home get to their workplaces.
