With the new ones, is time spent driving ( in a car ) to collect a truck counted as 'work' or 'rest'. I seem to remember years ago there was a part called 'other work' for such stuff.

I guess it may depend if it is on company time and purposes or your own.

I know that driving a car to work is not considered work but I think to get out of a truck then run around in a car throughout your break then get back into the truck may be frowned on as you are not 'resting'

There was something in the old log books about "driving any other vehicle...in connection with a journey in a heavy vehicle" being counted as work time. To my mind that could include driving a car from home to the base, but the RTA confirmed that it didn't. Considering some drivers live up tp 2 hours drive away, that must eat into their effective "rest" time., even if it is not "driving".

As for "rest", many people would probably work harder on their days off than they do behind the wheel, so they might not necessarily get any proper rest.

No. You can drive your car anywhere, anytime for as long as you like. That is a car up to 12t
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

I don't really see how it comes as 'rest' but if that is what the RTA have decided...

Maybe their reasoning is, if you have an A over T, you were fatigued, and therefore we can fine you for breach of said rule.

There are these training courses, where you can learn to stay awake for 14 hours rather than 12. ;) ;)
Would be wasted on me because I always fall asleep during training courses.
