EU drivers' hours rules set limits for daily, weekly and fortnightly driving and specify minimum breaks for drivers during the working day and daily and weekly rest periods.
Drivers must be made aware that if they constantly commit driving break infringements, they are likely to incur a serious sanction from DVSA and as the Operator, you risk bringing your repute into question with The Traffic Commissioners Office.
To coincide with the infringement interview held with the Transport Manager/Responsible Person, the Company should ensure that some immediate access to quantifiable training is given to repeat offenders. By using our on line brief against specific infringements, the driver is notified to their legal responsibilities and likely sanctions to be imposed on them if an Enforcement Officer wishes to take further action. Once completed, the process is tested and saved on the Drivers personal learning file. Evidence of training can be produced on demand.
