After the biggest changes in tachograph legislation in 12 years happened in June this year when a new generation of mandatory digital recorders was introduced, it’s easy to lose sight of the bigger compliance picture while concentrating on these new details.

Commercial Motor has once again teamed up with leading digital tachograph analysis specialists Aquarius to bring you an exclusive CM Special webinar to help avoid the most common pitfalls of compliance.

This webinar which took place on Wednesday 16 October, explains some of the top enquiries Aquarius receive from their customers on the subject of drivers’ hours law, the working time directive, digital tachographs and other DVSA requirements. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to keep ahead of the game and refresh your memory on the confusing topic of reduced daily rest at the end of a working week and train or ferry rest regulations as well as the consequences of drivers leaving gaps in tachograph records and incorrect manual entries and driver card requirements for non-UK drivers.

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