The contribution deals with problem of labour mobility in the field of road transport and driver’s remuneration. There is valid a free movement of goods and labour in European Union. There is employed a lot of drivers in companies in other countries of European Union in the field of road transport. Through implementation of national specifications, mainly mini-mal wage, the member states are limiting the common free market. In the first part the contribution identifies problems of common market depending to drivers’ remuneration. An undesirable result of national specifications is mailbox transport companies uprising. In order to reduce costs, such com-panies pay not only taxes but also driver insurance. The next part of the pa-per deals with the own research of driver remuneration carried out on 128,000 transport companies registered in three EU member states promot-ing national minimum wages and in three EU member states that are against national minimum wages. An aim of this contribution is to prove that the sus-tainability of free market in European Union is possible only if no national protection measures for own transporters are accepted.
