DOUBLE MANNING

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:

1) A regular rest period of at least 11 hours in the 30-hour period
2) A reduced rest period of at least 9 hours in the 30-hour period
3) A split daily rest within the 30-hour period, so long as it taken as the first period being at least three hours, and the second period being at least nine hours

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.

MAXIMUM DRIVING TIME

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).

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.
