Digital Tachographs


The digital tachograph is a part of many drivers’ working lives, but many have never recived formal training and misuse is common.

This course is appropriate for use as initial training or as a refresher, to ensure that your drivers are making best use of the digital tachograph.

  • Time management and logging on and off
  • Manual entries and mixed tachograph operation
  • Video and simulator exercises
  • Tachograph cards (including lost, stolen, damaged and malfunctioning cards)

Course objectives

By the end of this session, drivers will be able to understand the workings of the digital tachograph and just as importantly, the management, legal and technical aspects of its operation.
