If your vehicle is fitted with tachograph units, whether analogue or digital, you must get them calibrated, tested and seals checked, regularly. It is a legal requirement for trailer trucks in the UK to have a functional tachograph, so you must ensure yours is working properly. If you’re in need of tachograph calibration or tachograph repairs, Transcare is here to help. We’re based in Derbyshire and provide specialist tachograph calibration services to ensure you can stay on the road safely.
All heavy vehicles in the EU and UK must have a working tachograph installed. During a vehicle’s Preventative Maintenance Inspection (PMI), your seal will be checked to ensure it is intact and the last date on the PMI sheet will also be checked. Therefore, it’s important to stay up to date with tachograph repairs and installation. At Transcare, we provide professional tachograph calibration services for digital tachographs and analogue tachographs. We aim to ensure every vehicle is compliant and safe, so head to us today for your peace of mind.
Recording driver’s hours on the road and the speed of vehicles, a properly installed and calibrated tachograph is vital for the safety of heavy vehicle drivers and other road users. At our DVSA-approved tachograph centre in Derby, our engineers can assist with the installation and calibration of tachographs ensuring that they are working effectively. For fleet operators, our engineers are available to deliver an experienced service making sure that all vehicles in a fleet are compliant with government requirements.
Our engineers are experienced in identifying issues with tachographs and recalibrating or installing new tachographs in heavy vehicles. If a tachograph in one of your fleet’s vehicles is not working correctly, get in touch with Transcare in order to resolve the issue. Checking and recalibrating tachographs should also form part of a vehicle’s planned maintenance schedule. It is recommended that analogue tachographs are checked every two years and re-calibrated every six years whilst digital tachographs must be recalibrated every two years as well as after any significant repair, if the vehicle registration has changed or if tyre circumference has been changed.
