Compliance with drivers’ hours rules, working time directive and tachograph regulations have never been easier, we will alert you to any infringements which will show you the exact piece of legislation that has been infringed.

You must do 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years to keep your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) to drive a lorry, bus or coach. The deadline for the existing 5 year period is 9th September 2019. This will apply to any driver who operates under acquired rights. For all other drivers your deadline will be shown on your card. 
It’s up to you when you take the training courses, as long as you do them within the 5-year period. 
If you miss your deadline, you cannot drive professionally until you’ve finished your training.  
We would like to say a BIG well done to everyone who attended our CPC back in September. The results are through and we are delighted to announce that everyone who sat the Certificate of Professional Competence in Transport Management passed both Multiple Choice and Written Exams. 
We would like to congratulate two of our own who also sat the course, Leonie and Ryan. 
Rule 231 
Drive extremely carefully when the roads are icy. Avoid sudden actions as these could cause loss of control. 
You should: 
drive at a slow speed in as high a gear as possible; accelerate and brake very gently 
drive particularly slowly on bends where loss of control is more likely. Brake progressively on the straight before you reach a bend. Having slowed down, steer smoothly round the bend, avoiding sudden actions 
check your grip on the road surface when there is snow or ice by choosing a safe place to brake gently. If the steering feels unresponsive this may indicate ice and your vehicle losing its grip on the road. When travelling on ice, tyres make virtually no noise.

People Who Vape While Driving In The UK Could Lose Their Licence 
While texting away on your mobile phone while at the wheel is deservedly illegal in the UK, vaping has so far escaped the ire of the police so far. 
Well, not any more, as senior UK cops have warned people not to vape and drive at the same time, warning that you might be prosecuted and even lose your licence - if you don't crash your car first, that is. 
Police have warned that while puffing away at an e-cig while behind the wheel is not illegal in itself, the vapour clouds they produce can obscure your vision, temporarily blinding you and leaving you prone to an accident.

Last week, two men were banned from driving after testing positive for an inactive metabolite consistent with cocaine use – despite their systems containing no trace of the drug itself. 
Although cocaine circulates through the body in a matter of hours, benzoylecgonine (BZE) can remain detectable for days after being formed by the liver.
