Tachograph requirements

  • The tachograph must be approved, activated and calibrated.
  • Both digital and analogue tachographs must be checked every two years.
  • Only approved tachograph centres (workshops) can perform work on the tachograph.

Analogue or digital?

Vehicles registered after 9 December 2006 must be fitted with a digital tachograph. Vehicles registered before that date can be fitted with either an analogue or a digital tachograph.

If an analogue tachograph breaks down, it must be replaced by a digital one.
