Update on treatment of drivers’ hours offences

It was announced in September last year that traffic examiners would be given new powers to issue on-the-spot fines for any drivers’ hours offence committed in the last 28 days. Traffic examiners were allowed to start issuing these fines from 5 March 2018.

Fines can be issued for up to five drivers’ hours offences per roadside stop, meaning you could be fined up to £1500 in a single stop if you have consistently breached the rules.

Since November 2017, traffic examiners have started to fine drivers up to £300 if they spend their full weekly rest break in their vehicle in places where it causes a problem, for example whilst parked in a layby. Drivers spending their entire weekly rest in the cab can contribute to them failing to get a proper rest and can expose them to poor living conditions.

If you would like further information, please contact a member of our regulatory team on 01254 828300.
