GB ends relaxation of driving hours rules

Date : 16 June 2020

As a response to coronavirus, both GB and the EU relaxed rules on maximum working hours for HGV drivers.

The relaxation was intended to assist carriage of all types of goods, but various restrictions still applied, and safety could not be compromised

The GB relaxation ran from 23 March to 14 June and has therefore now ended - normal practice has been resumed. The EU relaxation ran from 23 March to 31 May and has also ended.
