Yes, of course you can use a creative timesheet system as the one we are using is Replicon's simple to use cloud based timesheet software. It has been quite efficient and productive for our business needs.]]>

Am i allowed to drive at the weekend (saturday 4.5 h drive 45 mins rest and 4.5 h drive,sunday 4.5h drive 45 mins rest and 2 h drive) after doing my normal job in the week 50hrs monday -friday(but not driving job i'm plant operator)?]]>

Not possible for 10 hours non stop driving. ]]>

Vintage CC trailers can be tough to find. You need to be patient and look at every available source. If you need a trailer now, the fab shop may not be a bad choice. Ideally they could copy a CC trailer if you could find one to borrow.]]>

hi can anybody clarify the working time and driving time for me. i work 6days 1 week, ( mon to sat ) starting at 02.30 and finising at roughly 12.30 to 1300 pm, and the next week (mon to frid) the same hours. i take a 45 min break each day. i average about 105 hours per fortnight after breaks. my point is that over the 17 week reference period i am working more than the 48 hour average.my empoyers say that after breaking down my working day i drive for 5 hours plus and other work for 4 hours plus, and therfore do not break the 48 average. surely the driving is part of the job? any help please!!!!]]>

If you never reach 4.5 hours of driving in a shift then no TACHO breaks need to be recorded however, many companiies (not authorities) want to see you conform to the RTWTD working time break rules

The RTWTD rules state that no driver should work/drive more than 6 hours without at least a 15 min break

The same RTWTD rules also state that if the WORK (drive+other work) in a shift is between 6 and 9 hours then a TOTAL of 30 mins of breaks must be taken OR if the TOTAL WORK in a shift is over 9 hours then a TOTAL of 45 mins breaks must be taken

In a shift of 9 hours and 45 mins you have a little problem ....

Taking 30 mins of breaks leaves a WORK time of 9 hours and 15 mins

Taking 45 mins of breaks leaves you a WORK time of 9 hours

If your shift time was 9 hours 30 mins then taking a total of 30 mins of breaks (perhaps 2 x 15 mins) would be ok but in your case you must take a total of 45 mins of breaks (3 x 15s will do)

So for my if I am driving and working this same day so it means I should follow driving rules and working rules together?]]>

All of these new tahograph rules confusing.

maybe you can explain to me?

for example;

I drive 18 tonne truck, I am working9.45 min Of which I only been driving 3 hours, sometimes more, but does notreach 4.30min, the other 5.15min is other work, so do I need to record break for 45 minutes on my digitaltaho card? I was in cpc courses, instructorexplained to my I need to record 45min break in digi taho card only in cases IfI reach 4.30min driving time.But in mywork i never driving more then 3.30min but I working totaly 9.45min

I very much hope that you will be able to help me.

thanks

]]>Hi there.

Legisation is based on "Rest Periods" and not on "Work Periods".

Remember you must have 11 hours rest within your 24 hour period from starting, i.e 06.00am to 06.00am the following day, but this can be reduced to 9 hours 3 times a week.

Therefore a 15 hour day + __9 hours rest__ = 24 hours, this is allowed 3 times within a week.

A 13 hour day + __11 hours rest__ = 24 hours. for the remaining days.

If you are not driving remember to take your "Working Time Directive" breaks.

I hope this helps

Hi there.

Yes you can reduce 45 hours weekly rest to 30 hours , as long as you do not reduce the following weekend, and you must compensate the reduction within 3 weeks (in one go).

I am sorry but the answer to your rest is NO.

Your weekly rest must be just that, a rest from working, not just driving

Not even for another employer.

Regards

Mikey....
