FTA publishes updated Drivers’ Handbook25 July 2017

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has released a fully updated version of its Drivers’ Handbook, which contains key compliance information for drivers of large and heavy goods vehicles.

The Handbook is written by commercial vehicle specialists within the FTA and is sponsored by Mercedes-Benz Trucks.

Topics covered include how to stay legal, driving best practice, looking after yourself, what to do when things go wrong and driving abroad. There is also a section of useful contacts and a pull-out for the HGV driver’s walk-around check pull-out.

It also includes updates on changes to speed limits as well as a major update on load security.

Es Shepherd, FTA’s head of member advice, says: “The new edition contains fresh information on current legislation and is aimed at cutting through the legal jargon in the areas that most affect the professional driver’s work.”

The Drivers’ Handbook is available via the link below (use product code 4301) at £6.75 a copy for FTA members and £8.00 for non members, with discounts for multiple purchases.
