Van Drivers’ Handbook updated to reflect the latest developments


Now in its sixth edition, Logistics UK’s popular Van Drivers’ Handbook, has recently been fully updated to cover topics from legal requirements and defensive driving to speed limits and Clean Air Zones.

With the sale of new petrol and diesel vans scheduled to end in 2030, the need for van operators to decarbonise their fleets features high on the agenda. There is additional information added regarding alternatively fuelled vans and the ability for a category B driver to drive a vehicle of up to 4.25 tonnes under a special concession. There is also a new ‘Clean Air Zones’ chapter to consolidate information on the vehicle requirements and charges for participating cities across the UK.

Important details, such as drivers’ hours and tachograph sections for international operations and a contact number for checking driving licences in Northern Ireland, have also been updated.

Denise Beedell, Public Policy Manager, Logistics UK, said: “Drivers of vans and light commercial vehicles will find this comprehensive handbook to be an indispensable guide to their profession. From information on drivers’ key legal requirements and driving offences to theft prevention and healthy living, this updated version of the Van Drivers’ Handbook contains everything you need to know about driving a van in an easy-to-read format.”
