Driving Guidelines

On 2 March 2015 a new law on driving after taking certain drugs came into force.

The law also includes eight drugs commonly associated with medicinal use, that are sometimes abused, that have been set at higher limits based on the available evidence of the road safety risk and to reflect their use as medicines. These are:

    • diazepam 
    • clonazepam 
    • flunitrazepam 
    • lorazepam 
    • oxazepam 
    • temazepam used to treat anxiety or inability to sleep 
    • Morphine used for pain relief 
    • methadone used to treat drug addiction

This law states that it is an offence to drive with certain drugs above specified blood levels in the body, whether your driving is impaired or not. This will make it easier for the police to tackle drug drivers.
