The Official Highway Code: fitness to drive 

Fitness to drive 


The Highway Code applies to England, Scotland and Wales and is essential reading for everyone. 

Rule 91

Driving when you are tired greatly increases your risk of collision. To minimise this risk 
  • make sure you are fit to drive. Do not begin a journey if you are tired. Get a good night’s sleep before embarking on a long journey 
  • avoid undertaking long journeys between midnight and 6 am, when natural alertness is at a minimum 
  • plan your journey to take sufficient breaks. A minimum break of at least 15 minutes after every two hours of driving is recommended 
  • if you feel at all sleepy, stop in a safe place. Do not stop on the hard shoulder of a motorway 
  • the most effective ways to counter sleepiness are to drink, for example, two cups of caffeinated coffee and to take a short nap (at least 15 minutes)
