EU Driving Rules Have Changed

The main changes include:

  • a requirement for drivers to ‘return home’ every 4 weeks
  • a ban on taking regular weekly rest periods in the drivers' vehicle
  • a new definition of ‘non-commercial carriage’
  • more flexibility on the scheduling of the rest periods for some drivers on international carriage of goods
  • new provisions for rests and breaks for drivers when journeys involve transport by ferry or by rail
  • a new requirement to keep a full record of all other work
