Approved tachograph centres

Tachographs record information about driving time, drivers' break and rest time, as well as time spent by the driver doing other work. They’re used to make sure drivers and employers follow the rules on drivers’ hours.

To relieve pressures within the tachograph calibration scheme, the period of validity of tachograph technicians training certificates has been extended for a further six months. The temporary relaxation afforded in respect of tachograph technician certification applies from 00.01 on Friday 1 May 2020 and will run until 23.59 on Saturday 31 October 2020. Before this period has elapsed, nominated testers will be required to have undertaken the required training. This will not apply to certificates that have expired prior to 1 May 2020. Where possible approved tachograph centres and nominated testers may use refresher training which has been specifically approved for distance learning. This may be via video link or other means. As and when these courses are approved, approved tachograph centres will be informed.

Below is a list of approved tachograph centres where you can have your tachograph fitted, checked, repaired and calibrated.
