If a lorry driver is fully vaccinated, they are not required to isolate in-cab or quarantine. However, if they are staying in England longer than 2 days they will need to take a test on or before day 2. And, if are travelling every day, they must take a test at least once every 3 days.

If a lorry driver is not fully vaccinated they must isolate away from other people in their cab during the time they are working in England and have to continue to test during this time: if staying in England longer than 2 days, a test should be taken on or before day 2, between days 3 and 5 and between days 6 and 8.

If they are travelling every day, they must take a test at least once every 3 days.
