REST PERIODS WHEN DOUBLE MANNED

Drivers rest breaks are the same as that of single manned journeys. If they choose, a driver can take either:

REST DURING PERIOD OF AVAILABILITY

On a multi-manning operation, 45 minutes of a period of availability will be considered to be a break, so long as the co-driver does no work.

 

REST DURING PERIOD OF AVAILABILITY

The maximum driving time for a two-man crew within a 30 hour period is 20 hours before a daily rest is required (although only if both drivers are entitled to drive 10 hours).

 
 

Minimum daily rest period

Each driver must have a daily rest period of at least 9 hours within a 30-hour period that starts after the last daily or weekly rest period has ended.
