The UK has left the EU.
The current rules on drivers hours continue to apply.
This page will be updated to reflect any changes.
These documents include:
- an explanation of drivers hours and working time rules

Drivers hours and working time rules are in place to protect drivers and reduce the risk of them being involved in accidents due to tiredness.
