GB Domestic Rules on drivers’ hours and tachographs for passenger vehicles - update

26 Jun 2024

An update issued by DVSA for section 2.2 of drivers hours rules.

Great Britain domestic rules on drivers’ hours – Updated section 2.2 Domestic driving limits, to provide clarity on the break requirements in the GB drivers’ hours rules in a working day. The changes clarify that: in a working day of less than 8 hours 30 minutes, drivers need to take a break of 30 minutes at the end of a period of 5 hours 30 minutes of driving, if such a break has not been taken already in a working day of more than 8 hours 30 minutes, the 45 minutes of non-driving time can mean other duties and not just a break. in a day more than 8 hours 30 minutes, drivers need to take a break of 30 minutes at the end of the 8 hour 30 minute period before the driver can continue working
