The DVLA has produced new guidance leaflets for professional drivers, in order to help both operators and drivers remain compliant with driver rules and regulations.
Within this bank of new guidance, the DVLA has developed handy leaflets for commercial LGV drivers and bus and coach drivers.
The guidance has been developed in a bid to help vocational LGV and passenger carrying drivers to understand the rules and regulations surrounding their professional role and provide guidance on how they can ensure they comply with these requirements. Developed in partnership with the Freight Transport Association (FTA), Traffic Commissioner for wales, Department for Transport, Road Haulage Association (RHA) and Confederation of Passenger Transport; the guidance also takes a look at the role traffic commissioners play and the influence they have with regards to vocational driving licences. The leaflets also provide further reading, with links to additional sources of information relating to rules and regulations for professional drivers.
The new guidance is a fantastic free tool for both employers and drivers to digest in a pro-active attempt to keep their drivers – and others on the road – safe. Designed to be printed and folded to pocket size, they can act as a handy reminder to drivers on the road – whether kept in the glove compartment, wallet or pocket.
The guidance leaflets are available to view and download from the DVLA website now.
