Answer

Split Sleeper berth allows drivers to split the required 10 hour off duty break into two shifts.

  • One of those shifts must be between 8-10 hours spent entirely on sleeper berth. 
  • The second shift can be between 2-8 hours and completed in the sleeper berth, off-duty or as a combination of sleeper berth and off-duty. 

Regardless of the order in which a driver takes these breaks, successful completion of both will give the driver a new 11-hour drive time and 14-hours driving window which begins after completion of the first qualifying break.
