Key rules for analogue drivers

If you are driving a vehicle which does not have a digital tachograph fitted but comes under the driver hours rules then you should record your hours on an analogue chart.

In particular you should make sure that the centre field of all analogue charts is completed correctly and in full.

Analogue record sheets

Analogue record sheets must contain the following:

  • surname and first name of driver
  • date and place where the use of the sheet begins and the date and
    place where the sheet ends
  • registration number of each vehicle to which the driver is assigned at
    the start of the first journey that is recorded on the sheet and then, if
    there is a change of vehicle, during the use of the sheet
  • odometer reading:
    • at the start of the first journey,
    • at the end of the last journey, and
    • if there is a change of vehicle during a working day, on the vehicle to which the driver was assigned and on the vehicle to which the driver is changing; and
  • time of any change of vehicle.
