Periodic tachograph calibrations and inspections

Published on: Apr 14 2020 at 05:06 PM


Because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic DVSA have decided to suspend periodic tachograph calibrations and inspections on vehicles.

All lorries, buses, coaches and trailers with a periodic test of their tachograph (calibration or inspection) due to expire will now be given a 3-month extension. New certificates will not be issued.




If your tachograph calibration or inspection is due in the next 3 months, an extension will be issued automatically. You do not need to take any extra action. You'll still need to keep tachographs operating effectively.


If your tachograph develops a fault, this must be repaired in line with the normal requirements.
