The rules for commercial drivers will be changing from 5th March 2018. The DVSA will be able to fine drivers who break the rules by exceeding the drivers’ hours limit and not taking the required breaks, up to £300. They may also face prosecution or have their vehicle immobilised.
Currently the DVSA are only able to fine drivers for offences committed that day, but from 5th March 2018, they will also be able fine drivers for offences that have been committed in the last 28 days. Read about the full changes here.
