Drivers’ hours: changes to fines for commercial drivers

DVSA traffic examiners are going to be given new powers to issue on-the-spot fines for any drivers hours offences committed in the last 28 days.

Traffic examiners will be able to issue fines for up to 5 drivers’ hours offences in a single check.

Further information will be released by DVSA nearer the time.

Also, from 1 November 2017, traffic examiners will issue fines of up to £300 to drivers who spend their full weekly rest break in their vehicle, in places where it causes a problem.
