• When the daily rest period is split, the last rest period must always be at least nine hours.
  • The daily rest period can be spent in the vehicle if it has satisfactory sleeping facilities and is stationary.
  • The daily rest period may be reduced to nine hours a maximum of three times between two weekly rest periods


You can interrupt the daily rest period up to two times for no more than one hour in total if the vehicle is to be driven onto or off a train or ferry. You must then have access to a place to sleep between the interruptions.

If the vehicle is manned with two or more drivers who drive the vehicle, the requirement is at least nine hours’ daily rest in the course of 30 hours.
