thanks mate, good info but nothing about multi drop breaks, must be as normal then.

just asked my dad he is a hgv driver..before 4.5 hours of driving you have got to take 3/4 hour break which can be taken like that or split into 1 x 1/4 hr and 1 x 1/2 hour but the half hour must be taken second (after the quarter) before 6 hours driving is completed, you can have as many breaks as you want but this is the minimum required. this applies to ALL drivers using a tacho whether your multi drop or not ok
you can drive for 9 hours a day and only 2x10 hr shifts in one week and you can only drive for a maximum of 90 hours a fortnight you can download all this info from vosa website i hope this has helped you
have fun ! and drive carefully ok
