No it isn’t possible to work these hours he would have been pulled in for tachograph infringements a long time ago this is the law not Royal Mail rules

Yes it is possible as long as he has 2 breaks of at least 11 hours between duties. Also it depends on the actually driving content of the duty. Some of my duty's when I was mail centre driver were as low as 1 hour and that was nightshift 8hrs 18mins. Sleeping bag in cab, lol oh those were the good ol days.

No it’s not possible you have to have a weekly rest of 45 hours you can reduce it to 24 hours one week but have to get the hours back on week 2 you must have 90 hours off in a 2 week period that’s the law this is if you use a tachograph which a 7.5 ton driver would have to do

Maybe it's because the driver also does balance of staff.
