Hours and rest breaks for UK goods vehicle drivers – Part 2

Part 2. There are different rules for drivers depending on what they drive, and it’s complicated!

All the rules in our article here only apply to vehicles that are used for the ‘carriage of goods by road’. This is defined as any journey made entirely or in part on roads open to the public.

These drivers are also covered by the Working Time Regulations.
