SUMMARY OF DRIVERS’ HOURS
www.nolgvbrokers.co.uk has created this post to give HGV drivers’ a brief overview of current EC Drivers Hours regulations. Understanding the rules and regulations surrounding drivers’ hours regs can sometimes be a tad confusing. We hope the information below helps.
4 ½ HOURS
9 HOURS (10 HOURS TWICE PER WEEK)
45 MINUTES AFTER 4½ HOURS DRIVING: MAY BE SPLIT INTO TWO PERIODS OF AT LEAST 15 + 30 MINS.
11 HOURS (9 HOURS THREE TIMES PER WEEK)
45 HOURS (24 ONCE PER FORTNIGHT: COMPENSATION REQUIRED WITHIN THE NEXT 3 WEEKS)
This information was correct at the time of posting (11/01/2011)
You can now attend Drivers’ Hours courses that are Driver CPC approved.
