Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Izaskun Bilbao Barandica (Renew)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: ‘Telelearning’ rules for haulage drivers

Last week was the deadline for Member States to transpose Directive (EU) 2018/645 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 April 2018 on the initial qualification and periodic training of drivers of certain road vehicles for the carriage of goods or passengers. This directive sets a mandatory minimum length of training – 280 for initial training, 140 for accelerated initial training and 35 for periodic training – and places a limit (12 hours) on the amount of periodic training that can be done online. The pandemic has obliged us to suspend certain deadlines for renewing these certifications and has given rise to a boom in teleworking and online distance learning.

1. Has the pandemic affected the limits on ‘telelearning’ established in this directive?

2. Does the Commission have any information on whether Member States have placed time limits on online training for initial and accelerated initial training processes?

3. Are there any plans to promote online training in this sector?
