Criminal Proceedings Against Skills Motor Coaches Ltd and Others: ECJ 18 Jan 2001

Where drivers drove away from their home and main centre of work to pick up a vehicle which would require them to record their activities on the tachograph, they were obliged in addition to record the time travelling as another period of work. This was not a situation where a driver had begun driving immediately after a rest period. Whether the driver had had specific instructions as to what to do or had had some element of choice was not conclusive either.
