In that case you would have to gain ( or lose ) half or one and a half hours at midnight. But then you might be driving at midnight.

Pete , I think once you cross over into WA or NT , they are not part of the national log book thing . I think you put it away until you get back to the border .

Interesting, but then you would need to put something down for those days.

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.


A car is a non regulated vehicle and that time is not required to be put into a work diary, example to/from work.
If one was working in the depot, e.g. before/after driving a regulated heavy vehicle (over 12 t gvm & over 100km from base) loading/unloading/fueling/washing and went and got spare parts or part of a load in a vehicle under 12 t gvm this would be work time.

Stay on the one time zone during your entire trip.

Crossing a state boarder one should keep using a diary.
