Running a fleet of trucks or coaches (generally over the weight of 3.5 tonnes or passenger vehicles with more than 9 seats) legally requires you to comply with driver's hour rules, fines and penalties will be given if you do not adhere to these compliances. Tachograph devices are fitted to your vehicles so that you can manage drivers' hours, routes, and driver safety, with full access 24/7 to the data collected by the device.

Compliance and Penalisations

The responsible planner, fleet managers and businesses can all be held accountable for non-compliance, in some cases jail time may be given, and operational licences can be revoked. Governing bodies will look into the training that was given and practices taken to ensure legal driving hours.

Digital Tachograph

Vehicle downtime shouldn't stop you from being compliant, with MESH digital tachograph you can remotely download your data from wherever you are. Your data must be analysed frequently, at a minimum of 28 days for every driver, and 90 for each vehicle.

Tachograph ID Cards

If your drivers switch between vehicles within a day, week or month it is important that you are seamlessly monitoring their hours at all times. The Tachograph ID cards read the dates, times and total distance of driving, and include all relevant information for compliance, which downloads into your MESH Telematics Dashboard.

Each driver must only have one driver's card.


Applications for Tachograph cards in the UK are all done through the DVLA. However, this can vary from country to country. You must fill out your ‘D777B/DL application form for a digital tachograph driver card and post it to the DVLA, this is also how you would source a replacement, damaged or renewed card, this can be done by the individual or fleet manager.
