New guidance: Furloughed drivers and recording mobile working time

New guidance has been published on furloughed drivers and recording mobile working time.

The Government’s Department for Transport and Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency issued the new advice yesterday (Thursday, May 28).

The guidance explains how:

  • to record your activities when furloughed, including when undertaking other work, either on your tachograph or by manual record if a tachograph cannot be used
  • being furloughed interacts with the working time rules that apply to mobile workers
  • to meet your obligations relating to driver card and tachograph vehicle unit data during coronavirus (COVID-19) related disruption.
