The Swedish Transport Agency has the overall responsibility for commercial transport on roads in Sweden.
Notification of temporary derogation from driving and rest times
In response to the extraordinary crisis situation due to the pandemic of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Sweden has agreed to a temporary and limited relaxation of the enforcement of driving and rest times for the drivers of vehicles engaged in this type of transports.
We have the overall responsibility
The fact that we have overall responsibility for commercial transport on roads in Sweden means that
- we make and implement rules and regulations for driving and rest periods,
- professional competence for professional drivers and prospective licence holders,
- scheduled service licences
- governing the measurements and weight of heavy vehicles.
The objective of our work is to help achieve efficient commercial transport that is safe and environmentally friendly and which is run by firms that operate on equally competitive terms.
