Exemptions from EU Driver’s Hours Rules

In general most of the drivers driving a vehicle which gross weight exceeds 3.5 ton on commercial journey in European Union fall under EU Driver’s Hours and Working Time Directive. However certain vehicle types or specified operations are exempt from above rules. On top of that European Union allows  the member states to grant derogations on the journeys undertaken within the borders of given state. The full list of Exemptions and Derogations can be found in VOSA Guide ” Rules on Driver’s Hours and Tachographs”.
