The rules and regulations covering drivers' hours and tachograph recording equipment can be complex. Any breach of tachograph regulations can result in heavy fines, the loss of your O-Licence and even custodial sentences for serious offences. Our Tachograph audit is designed to ensure you have appropriate systems in place to manage vehicle and driver tachograph data. Ignorance of the law is no defense and operators share the responsibility with drivers for ensuring accurate records of activities are being kept.  

Many operators now use the services of an external analysis bureau. This can be a convenient option for basic infringement reporting but these automated services may not identify and highlight certain faults or issues. Our audits will give an in-depth assessment of your records and procedures giving you peace of mind that you are operating legally.

Enforcement officers can examine data at the roadside or carry out inspections at your premises. Operators share the responsibility with drivers to ensure the rules and regulations are adhered to. Failure to obey the rules can result in serious consequences.  


Our background is transport management so we understand things from the operators perspective. We know the common pitfalls and problem areas relating to drivers hours and tachographs because we've been there. We can offer helpful guidance and our services are fully confidential. Our aim is to help operators improve things and deal with any issues before DVSA or the Traffic Commissioner take enforcement action.
