Split Daily Rest

■ A 12 Hour daily rest period can be split into two, the first being no less than 3 Hours, the second no less than 9 (This does not class as a Reduced Daily Rest).

This allows a driver to split a Regular Daily Rest, though a total of 12 hours must be taken within the 24 hour reference period.

The first, minimum 3 hour rest period, that would be taken during the working day must be continuous (unbroken), as must the final 9 hour period.
