Many regulations have started undergoing redrafts because of Brexit’s effects and the increasingly tense global political climate, so consumers became more and more uncertain about how they will be affected and how they should react to the events. Because of this instability, operators and managers should always have a resource at hand before and after they get on the road.

‘Lowe’s Transport Manager’s and Operator’s Handbook 2018’ is the fully updated 48th edition of the bestselling guide for trainers, operators, and drivers who want to be up to date on how changing regulations will affect them, their business, and their continued licensing privileges. The guide will be available starting with the 3rd of February 2018.

Every year the legislation gets updated and drivers need to know how to remain compliant; therefore this edition outlines statutory responsibilities while being on the road and aids good vehicle operators and transport managers in knowing and understanding their legal obligations. Its readers will also avoid the reputational and financial risk of prosecution and noncompliance and will end up with a non-stop reference book for any complex issues and their repercussions.

The former Director of Professional Development at the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), Dorothea Carvalho, has given her continuous praise for the previous editions, saying that the handbook “reflects current practice and legislation is the essential reference source for transport managers and operators alike.”

The new edition of ‘Lowe’s Transport Manager’s and Operator’s Handbook 2018’ has been updated and revised to reflect the latest developments in legislation and regulations, including information on driving test changes, the new Vehicle Operator Licensing System (VOL), new penalties for mobile phone use, vehicle maintenance plans, and the introduction of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) and T-Charge in central London.
