DVSA: Changes to Fines | AIM Members’ Meeting

DVSA: Changes to Fines

Currently, the DVSA issue fines related to commercial driving offences committed that day or on-going, but they will be extending the time period to cover offences committed in the previous 28 days.

From Monday 5th March 2018, DVSA traffic examiners will start issuing on-the-spot fines for any drivers’ hours offences committed in the last 28 days, whether or not the offences took place in Great Britain.

In a single roadside check, the examiner can issue fines for up to 5 drivers’ hours offences. With each offence carrying a penalty of up to £300, that’s a potential £1500 in fines in one check, (just for drivers’ hours offences).

This change will allow the DVSA to better enforce the rules regarding weekly rest, which were introduced in November 2017.

The rules will also apply to drivers who don’t live in Great Britain. However, they’ll need to pay any fines immediately. DVSA will immobilise their vehicle until they pay.
