My partner, who drives a heavy goods vehicle, was stopped last October by the police who checked his digital tachograph. He was told that he had some infringements on his drivers hours ie failure to take adequate breaks or driving over the allowed time without resting, therefore he would have to go to court.

He received the court order yesterday, and he has decided to attend court and plead guilty to most of the charges as he was at fault for not fully understanding about rest times, breaks, etc.(yeah yeah i hear u say, but it was an honest mistake). He did notice one infringement that stated he didnt take the full 11 hour daily rest, but that was dated on a monday, the day on which he starts his working week, so that seems to be incorrect (sorry if i dont make sense im just going on what he told me, i dont have a clue about hgv drivers hours and breaks)

So my question is, what is his likely sentence to be. Is it just a fixed penalty and/or points on his license. The court order did state to bring financial circumstances info to base the sentencing on. What is the maximum he is expected to pay for driving infringements?

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

It must be a difficult relationship as you are apparently job hunting in the USA and you partner is driving a lorry in the UK.

Each working day ENDS with a rest period so it is very possible that you partner had less then 9 hours (not 11 in this case) rest in the first 24 hours of his working period.

However it would be better to get your partner to ask the questions himself as he should have more understanding than you having also completed his Drivers CPC before being allowed to work.

Alao as I noted on your other post we do not allow links on these forums so I've also deleted them here.
