Please Note

Please be aware this software is primarily a capturing and storing facility for digital data and will provide visibility of data to allow operators to view and identify infringements.  Although it can provide some basic reports it will not analyse data in terms of reporting infringements for either Drivers' Hours or the Working Time Regulations.  Please ensure you have the resource within your organisation to ensure compliance is maintained and driver infringements are recorded and addressed.  If this is not the case we would strongly recommend that you consider using our Analysis Software and would be happy to discuss options.

What is the current tachograph legislation?

Regulation (EU) No 165/2014 has introduced second-generation digital tachographs called smart tachographs, which include a connection to the global navigation satellite system (‘GNSS’) facility, a remote early detection communication facility, and an interface with intelligent transport systems. The specifications for the technical requirements for the construction of smart tachographs should be set up. 

This Regulation lays down the provisions necessary for the uniform application of the following aspects regarding tachographs: 

  • Recording of the position of the vehicle at certain points during the daily working period of the driver 
  • Remote early detection of possible manipulation or misuse of smart tachographs 
  • Interface with intelligent transport systems 
  • The administrative and technical requirements for the type-approval procedures of tachographs 

Can I apply online for a digital tachograph card? 

If you need to apply for a digital tachograph card and you don’t need to submit a new photo (the one on your driving license will be used) you can complete the DVLA D777B(DL) form, which can be found here or on www.gov.uk

For all other applications, you should complete the DVLA D77B form which can be found here or on www.gov.uk

How long can you drive on a tachograph? 

The tachograph rules currently state the maximum daily driving hours on a tachograph are set to 9 hours, although twice a week this can be extended to 10 hours. The maximum weekly driving hours are limited to 56 hours, and the maximum two-weekly driving limit is 90 hours over any two weeks.
