Work time logbooks

There are restrictions placed on how long the driver of a commercial or heavy motor vehicle may work before taking rest. Restricting work time helps reduce the risk of fatigue in drivers of commercial and heavy motor vehicles.

The NZTA have now published an Interim Minimum specification for electronic driver logbooks. This is an initiative to update the regulations for Work Time Rules and expand its coverage to address audit standards, position archiving requirements, roadside inspection procedures, and more.
