DfT & DVSA confirm guidance on working time for furloughed drivers

The DfT (Department for Transport) and DVSA (Driving Vehicle Standards Agency) have released guidance on recording mobile working time for furloughed drivers.

In summary time spent furloughed does not form part of the calculation of the average maximum weekly working time, as it does not fall under either ‘working time’ or ‘excluded hours’.

Therefore if a furloughed worker is not doing other work, including any training that would usually be recorded as working time, the time is not working time.

Work that is undertaken by a mobile worker while they are furloughed (for instance for a different employer) that is in scope of the regulations must be recorded and form part of the calculation of the worker’s average weekly working time.

The full guidance is available HERE.
