Presuming you mean paving slabs Mo, yes its usually ok. The slabs should be laid on a bed of sharp sand and cement approx 50mm thick and mixed at 8 to 1. The mix should be damp but not wet which will allow it to dry fairly flxibly and take up any movement in the driveway below caused by varying temperatures,
