Customer Question

hi can your transport manager dictate how a driver uses his weekly drving hours ? i.e our manager has come up with this idea that we must keep our 2 ten hour days until our last two shifts can he legally imply this on the drivers and is there any truth to back up a statement l have heard that you cannot do two ten hour shifts back to back.

As a HGV Driver l have 90 driving hours per fortnight maximum to use whatever way l see fit. Local Manager says l must keep my two extended days for my last two shifts of the week. Can he set this in stone ? Secondly l have heard at a cpc course it is illegal to do two ten hour drives back to back is this correct or rumour.
