What happens about the drivers’ hours and tachograph rules when my driver is on a ferry boat — as I have a load going to mainland Europe?

A

When using ferries and trains, regular daily rest can be interrupted not more than twice by other activities, eg to embark, disembark or deal with customs paperwork, etc. The total of both interruptions must be not more than one hour (eg 30 minutes to embark and 30 minutes to disembark). During both parts of the rest, the driver must have access to a sleeper cabin, bunk or couchette.
