COVID-19 Services for EU-Bound Hauliers

New COVID-19 testing sites have been opened following the new COVID-19 testing requirements being introduced for hauliers heading to the EU.

The new sites have opened and are located at the following service stations:

  • Birchanger:  Old Dunmow Road, Bishops Stortford, CM23 5QZ
  • Baldock: A1(M), 10, Radwell, Baldock, SG7 5TR
  • Cobham: 9/10 M25, Downside, Cobham, KT11 3DB

Check site opening times before travelling.

More than 200,000 HGV drivers and crew have been tested. Drivers who have a valid Kent Access Permit and a negative COVID-19 test before arriving in Kent will be fast tracked to arrive quickly at Eurotunnel or the Port of Dover.

For some countries, you will be required to take a test before leaving the UK, including France. Follow this link to find out which countries require them and how to get a free test at one of the 37 test locations set up across the UK.

Fewer than 5% of hauliers have been turned back from the port in the 6 weeks since the transition period ended.

The Department of Transport have thanked drivers for complying with the measures and helping keep Kent traffic delays to a minimum. They also ask that drivers continue to follow the traffic management directions in Kent to ensure a speedy crossing.

Changes to French COVID protocol

There have been new rules introduced by French authorities for hauliers.

Hauliers returning to France within 48 hours of arrival in the UK no longer require a COVID-19 test. Hauliers from the Republic of Ireland can now rely on a negative test taken in Ireland if the test was carried out within 72 hours of departure from a UK port for France.
