From 6 April all drivers arriving in England from abroad will need to take a COVID-19 test if they are staying in the UK for more than 2 days.
They need to take the first test within the first 2 days, then further tests every 3 days. This will apply to HGV drivers and their passenger, drivers of vans and other light goods vehicles. It applies to both UK-based and non-UK drivers. You will need to take at least 3 tests, if you will be staying in England for 10 days or longer. You must take the first test within 2 days of your arrival. The day of your arrival is counted as day 0. You must take the second test 3 days after your first test and the third test 3 days after your second test. The date and time of your arrival will be collected and recorded in the Passenger Locator Form, which you are required to complete for every journey into the UK. If you do not have proof of a negative COVID-19 test, you could be fined £2,000.
You do not need to take a test if you will be in England for 2 days or less.
