IMPORTANT driving times
After 6 working days in a row, you have to take a break of at least 45 hours.
In exceptional cases, the political rest period may be reduced to 24 hours, but only
if the regular break of at least 45 hours becomes in the previous and following week.
The uncomfortable rest period (45-24 = 21 hours) must be made up between the three weeks, namely 11 hours after a quiet period or 45 hours after a reasonable rest period.
The difference between driving and rest times and working hours
The EU Parliament is responsible for working driving and rest times, the Working Hours Act regulates working hours - also known as shift hours. Both mandatory specifications must be observed.
