Electronic Cigarettes

We have been asked about the use of electronic cigarettes in licensed vehicles.  The advice/information we are currently giving is that:

  • Whilst they are not illegal it would be hard to prove that they are not a real cigarette if seen by an enforcement officer passing by
  • It does not send the correct message to the customers and could lead to abuse of the legislation
  • Our policy states that drivers should not smoke in their vehicles

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide information when necessary.

Drug Driving Law

Have you checked theDrug Driving Law as this includes some prescription drugs?

Make sure that you read the information and fully understand what drugs could affect you or you may lose your licence.
