The contribution deals with the problem of labour mobility in the field of road transport and driver’s remuneration. There is a valid free movement of goods and labour in the European Union. There is employed a lot of drivers in companies in other countries of the European Union in the field of road transport. Through the implementation of national specifications, mainly minimal wage, the member states are limiting the common free market. In the first part, the contribution identifies problems of common market depending on drivers’ remuneration. An undesirable result of national specifications is letterbox transport companies uprising. In order to reduce costs, such companies pay not only taxes but also driver insurance. The next part of the paper deals with the own research of driver remuneration carried out. An aim of this contribution is to prove that the sustainability of the free market in the European Union is possible only if no national protection measures for own transporters are accepted.
