Tachographs
It is a legal requirement for drivers to retain all charts from the previous 15 calendar days, in addition to the charts used during the current weekly period.
 
All drivers should submit their tachographs to Morestaff or direct to the client. On the rare occasions where tachographs are misplaced, a disclaimed letter will be composed and sent out. However this should be a last resort.
 
We stress to all our drivers that Tachographs must be accurate and submitted punctually.
 
The Digital Tachograph is a new way to record drivers' hours. Information is stored in the memory of the vehicle unit and also on the driver's smart card rather than scribed onto the traditional wax-coated chart. This makes the information more secure. The system also has many security features and will record any attempt at tampering. It electronically records information about the vehicle such as drivers' faults, events and speed in real time. The data is stored for approximately 365 days at which point the oldest data is overwritten. The display will relay information in pictogram and text format on a continual basis.
 
Drivers will need a valid card to operate the Digital Tachograph. This is available from the DVLA. The card identifies the drivers to the Vehicle Unit and is capable of storing approximately 28 days of average data. It shows:
  • Vehicle(s) used.
  • Dates and times.
  • Duty periods.
  • Distance travelled.
  • Activities.
  • Specific conditions.
  • Withdrawal and insertion of the card.
  • Faults and events.
