We are aware that legal issues relating to a driver in the road transport industry are both complex and time consuming. This site is designed to provide you with the necessary information to allow you to make informed decision on the best solution or practice for your own needs. We do not offer legal advice. We try to simplify the legal jargon and the misconceptions in relation to road transport law.

We understand that Drivers Hours regulations and the Working Time Directive can for some be complex and cumbersome to understand and to adhere to. We will do everything possible to provide you with the information you require to remain within the scope of the regulations. While the law is for protection of the general public sometimes the law can be interpreted in different ways by the enforcement agencies and sometimes they don’t get it right. The Association will where practical
endeavour to provide as much information to assist you in understanding the rules relevant to road transport.

The rules are laid out in various documents, statutory instruments and regulatory articles that have over time been amended to make up a complex set of rules that require a legal understanding to apply to particular situations.
