ControlThe control cards will be used by the official security forces and the regional governement inspectors to monitor the driving and rest time, manipulation of the tachograph, etc.

The card identifies the Control Body, or the authority carrying out the control if applicable, and allows access to information stored in the driver cards or in the tachograph, so that it can be read, printed or transferred.

The control cards will be valid for five years.

Controls over drivers’ activities (mainly driving and rest times) should not be carried out without a control card.

The digital tachograph registers and stores the following data from the 20 most recent controls:

  • Control date and time.
  • Number of the control card and the issuing Member State.
  • Type of control:
    • Visual
    • Printed
    • Transfer of tachograph or driver card data.
