Share Article

Tachodisc has launched Tachotrain, a revolutionary new digital tachograph training management system which will enable companies’ to test and periodically assess drivers knowledge on key legislation subjects. It can also automatically track, manage and report on all staff training requirements by employee, job type, depot, location and reporting line for Driver CPC as well as wider HSE requirements.

Tachotrain gives companies the flexibility to schedule testing around work schedules from any location – a PC and internet connection is all that is required.

Created by Tachodisc, Tachotrain serves to modernise the way digital tachograph training can be delivered in the road transport industry. The virtual tachograph training area contains a series of online multiple choice tests, which have been devised by Tachodisc’s legislative training experts; subjects include Drivers’ Hours Law, Road Transport Directive and Road Worthiness. These provide companies with the unique ability to periodically test and assess drivers’ knowledge on key legislative subjects.

Karen Crispe, Tachodisc’s Managing Director says: “With VOSA stating that Drivers’ Hours abuse is still the most common reason for prosecutions, continuously testing drivers’ knowledge and assessing their training needs is imperative – and not only in terms of reducing fines, protecting OCRS scores, but in making sure your drivers are safe on the road.”

“Tachotrain gives companies the flexibility to schedule testing around work schedules from any location – a PC and internet connection is all that is required. The tests are also a great tool for hiring managers, allowing candidates knowledge to be quickly assessed during the recruitment process,” said Karen.

Significantly, Tachotrain has also been designed to securely hold a complete record of staff qualifications and ongoing training requirements. The system automatically tracks, identifies and notifies line managers of re-validations and training needs by employee, job type, depot, location and reporting line. “This is a valuable management tool, especially for managing Driver CPC,” added Karen. “The system tracks and reports on how many CPC hours each driver has done and when, and visibly flags up what needs to be achieved to meet the deadline,” added Karen.

Tachotrain’s detailed reporting functions also allows companies to plan, track trends and identify areas of improvement, thus enabling Driver CPC and general training budgets to be deployed more cost-effectively.
