DT Driver Training launches online logbook and work time refresher course

1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineMay 8, 2017

DT Driver Training has added a logbook and work time refresher module to its Fleet Driver Training Plan. It helps companies ensure that their drivers know how to fill out their logbooks and calculate their work time, and therefore avoid fines and demerits.

“With NZTA recently changing the logbook rules again, now‘s the time to ensure your drivers are aware of their obligations,” said director Darren Cottingham. “Company managers can monitor driver progress through the modules and create a certificate when the driver has finished.”

The module is available online at www.drivingtests.co.nz and explains how to fill out the logbook properly and identify mistakes, cumulative work periods and work days, variations, secondary employment, penalties, exemptions, employer obligations, calculating work time, unavoidable delays and more.

Used in conjunction with the existing fatigue module, it can assist drivers studying towards unit standard 24089 (Demonstrate knowledge of fatigue management, work time, and driver logbook requirements).

The Fleet Driver Training Plan can also be accessed via DT‘s free iOS and Android apps, along with their modules for driver health and safety, advanced driving, heavy vehicle training, and the Road Code.
