Minibus fleets must face-up to tachograph and drivers hours record-keeping nightmare, warns Jamma

1 July 2006

Businesses, schools, charities and other organisations operating minibuses with 10-17 seats commercially must fit tachographs to those vehicles next year.

And, depending on the Government’s interpretation of new European Parliament legislation on the recording of drivers’ hours non-commercial minibus operators may have to fit tachographs to vehicles.

With the clock ticking to the April 11, 2007 introduction of the change - operators will have until December 31, 2007 to fit a tachograph (analogue or digital) to minibuses - occupational road safety and fleet software experts Jaama says all organisations should seek expert advice to avoid breaking the law.
