Andy is 65 years old and works for an aggregates firm. Today his shift will start at 09.30am where he will carry out his daily checks. He leaves the yard at 10:00am to deliver a load of sand to a large building site in central England.

Andy is driving an articulated lorry with a Maximum Authorised Mass of 30 tonnes and a kerbside weight of 12 tonnes.  The length of the vehicle is just over 48 ft.

This is his first day back at work after taking three days off.  Unfortunately his first day back will be a long one meaning he won’t finish until 11pm due to an accident on the motorway.

Last week Andy drove for a total of 54 hours and he is driving under EU rules.

Next week Andy will be on a course paid for by his company to renew his driver CPC qualification
