Drivers' Hours Law for Managers Course

Product Code: DHL1

Drivers of vehicles over 3.5 tonnes are responsible under the law in ways that go far beyond that of any other profession.

Employers also have legally enforceable responsibilities for the training and actions of their drivers. This is stated in Article 10 of the new Drivers Hours Regulations.

Understanding and implementing the law is a joint responsibility, and failure to do either could result in prosecution and even the restriction or loss of the company operating licence.

This course gives both drivers and employers a clear understanding of correct tachograph use and its governing legislation. New Drivers Hours Regulations were introduced on 11th April 2007, so this course is recommended for those who gained transport management qualifications before that date, those who hold a Restricted Operator Licence and as a helpful revision course for all transport managers who need to ensure that they comply with Drivers' Hours Law.

The course leads to a certificate of professionalism. Novadata can also provide follow-up checks of driver infringements and advise on how improvements can be achieved. This service has proved invaluable to the many clients who have chosen this option.
