Drivers' hours


The hours a driver can drive are strictly controlled by regulations known collectively as the drivers’ hours rules. These rules maintain safety standards and deal with maximum driving times, breaks and minimum rest periods. Drivers’ hours rules apply to both goods and passenger vehicles.
