The Freight Transport Association updates its Drivers’ Handbook

Freight Transport Association (FTA) updated its truck drivers’ handbook

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has updated its truck drivers’ handbook to help professional truck drivers carry out their work safely and responsibly.

The handbook has been written by FTA specialists who advise the association’s members on all aspects of commercial vehicle operation. It covers staying 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 an HGV driver’s walk around check pull-out. It includes key updates on a range of issues from changes to speed limits to a major update on load security. 

Es Shepherd, FTA’s head of member advice at the FTA, said: “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. It’s designed to be carried in the cab or overnight bag so that guidance is always to hand.”
