COVID-19 testing

Several countries have introduced COVID-19 testing requirements for hauliers. The rules are different in each country. Check the rules before you travel and take the necessary action.

You need a negative test result before you travel to France, Denmark and the Netherlands.

Free COVID-19 testing is available for drivers and crew at the advice sites marked below.

Professional coach drivers who are driving abroad for work can also take a free COVID-19 test at haulier advice sites.

We strongly advise drivers and crew to get a negative test before they travel to Kent or other Channel crossing points.

Drivers and crew using Dover and Eurotunnel will get fast-tracked past queues if they get tested and have a valid Kent Access Permit before arriving in Kent.

Testing is available at Manston Airport and Ashford Sevington in Kent, but there is a chance of severe delays.

To avoid delays, get tested at an advice site before you enter Kent.
