Tachograph Courses Digital & Analogue

Gills Driving School Tachograph CoursesThis is a one day course for drivers and/or managers using Siemens and Stoneridge Optac Vehicle Units (Digital) and drivers will be given the opportunity to experience downloading tachograph cards. The course will also cover all topics relating to Analogue Tachograph cards.

This is an approved and Certified Course by The International Road Transport Union.

There are two kinds of Tachograph – Digital and Analogue.

Both are fitted in the cab of trucks and buses and are used to monitor compliance with driver hours’ legislation. Digital Tachographs became mandatory in new commercial lorries and buses within the EU in May 2006.

The provision of driver cards for use by drivers, companies, calibration workshops and enforcement officers is central to digital Tachographs. Data is stored in the vehicle unit memory and on the driver smart cards.

The data contains a range of information including distance covered, vehicle speed (for the previous 24 hours of driving), vehicle licence number, and driver activity (driving, rest, breaks, other work, periods of availability).

Tachograph Refresher Courses can be tailor made for your company’s needs.
