Your questions on drivers’ hours law, the working time directive, digital tachographs and other DVSA requirements answered

Did you miss the chance to catch up on your tachograph knowledge when we hosted an exclusive Common Compliance Pitfalls webinar in association with Aquarius? 

Experts from digital tachograph analysis specialists Aquarius explained some of the top enquiries they get from their customers on drivers’ hours law, the working time directive, digital tachographs and other DVSA requirements.

Catch up on this one-long webinar which covers the consequences of drivers leaving gaps in tachograph records, as well as clears up the confusing topic of reduced daily rest at the end of a working week. There's also a section on train or ferry rest regulations and how to account for incorrect manual entries when drivers leave tachograph cards in overnight. 

Other pitfalls also covered include record-keeping requirements in emergency situations and monitoring, identifying and accounting for missing kilometres when comparing driver cards and vehicle data.
