Driver FAQs

Below you’ll find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about driver working hours and the law that governs it. Click on the + symbol on the left hand side to reveal each answer.

A break of no less than 45 minutes must be taken after no more than 4.5 hours of driving. The break can be divided into 2 periods – the first at least 15 minutes long and the second at least 30 minutes – taken over the 4.5 hours.
Maximum of 9 hours, extendable to 10 hours no more than twice a week.
Maximum of 56 hours.
Maximum of 90 hours in any two-week period.
Minimum of 11 hours, which can be reduced to a minimum of 9 hours no more than 3 times between weekly rests. May be taken in 2 periods, the first at least 3 hours long and the second at least 9 hours long. The rest must be completed within 24 hours of the end of the last daily or weekly rest period.
A 9 hour daily rest must be taken within a period of 30 hours that starts from the end of the last daily or weekly rest period. For the first hour of multi-manning, the presence of another driver is optional, but for the remaining time it is compulsory.
A regular rest period (of at least 11 hours) may be interrupted no more than twice by other activities of not more than 1 hour’s duration in total, provided that the driver is accompanying a vehicle that is travelling by ferry or train and has access to a bunk or couchette.
A regular weekly rest of at least 45 hours, or a reduced weekly rest of at least 24 hours, must be started no later than the end of 6 consecutive 24-hour periods from the end of the last weekly rest. In any 2 consecutive weeks a driver must have at least 2 weekly rests – 1 of which must be at least 45 hours long. A weekly rest that falls across 2 weeks may be counted in either week but not in both. Any reductions must be compensated in 1 block by an equivalent rest added to another rest period of at least 9 hours before the end of the third week following the week in question.

Under the Regulations, “Working Time” for mobile workers must not exceed:

  • An average 48 hour week (normally calculated over a 4 month reference period);
  • 60 hours in any single week;
  • 10 hours in any 24 hour period, if working at night

Working time includes activities such as driving, loading, unloading, cleaning and technical maintenance, assisting passenger boarding, disembarking the vehicle. The directive also entails break requirements (maximum 6 consecutive working hours without breaks) and extends rest time provisions of the EU drivers’ hours rules to crew members on in-scope vehicles.

Drivers subject to the EU drivers’ hours rules are required by law to record drivers’ activities (including the vehicle’s speed, distance and time) using an approved tachograph.

I was put in touch with DRA through a mutual friend of Peter and have been with them since October 2014. I find them easy to work with and they have always kept me busy in the type of jobs that have suited me. At the moment I am in an ongoing contract with a local company which means that I aren’t travelling far to pick the vehicle up which suits me down to the ground. I would recommend anyone who is out of work or looking for a change to give them a call.
