a letter of attestation for periods on which a driver does not drive
Explanation:
This is required in compliance with the tachograph regulations. The extracts are from the websites listed below: "Le règlement européen 3821/85 impose au conducteur, lors d'un contrôle routier, de présenter les disques de la semaine en cours et celui du dernier jour travaillé de la semaine précédente. En cas d'interruption dans la chronologie des disques pour cause de repos ou de congé, le conducteur doit fournir une attestation de non conduite signée par son employeur." "For international journeys blank charts for days on which a driver does not drive are recommended but if travelling through France or Belgium a letter of attestation from the employer (preferably in French) covering the period or periods for which charts
are not available should be carried."

driving restriction (medical)


Explanation:
Total guess...
Could it be a doctor's report prohibiting driving for medical reasons? This would make it impossible for some drivers to work, so might be part of their time management system.
Again, total guess!
