    Default Tachograph advice please ?

    Ok guys , I'm self employed (floor layer) but it's never been this quiet - ever lol.
    So coming upto christmas I've been offered some driving work through an agency , but I need to sit an assessment for the tacho regulations , I have driven a truck in the past but it was a good few years ago.
    Can anyone give me any sort of ideas what to be expecting in this assesment ?
    Apparently it takes about 45 mins.
    I have had a look on google at the driving times and rest periods etc as a refresher , but any pointers would be appreciated guys .

    Settle down with that for a start!

    Edit; Ignore this, it's an old one that should have been updated, the rest breaks still show it being legal to take a 15 then 30 min break within the 4 1/2 hour driving period, it's now the other way around..

    It'll probably be multiple choice, with common sense answers.

    as far as i am aware you still have to take a 15 then a 30 minute break (or a full 45) within 4 1/2 hours driving, but you also need to have at least 30 minutes break within the first 6 hours of working time (or 2x15 minute breaks) to comply with the wtd

    No, your last break must be the 30 minute one. If you take a split rest during the 4.5 hours driving it must be 15 and the 30 last.
