The FTA has launched an app for drivers which is designed to give them visibility of their hours data.
Named Driverfta the app is free for all FTA members and is available on both iPhone and Android devices. The app enables drivers to keep track of their most recent driving updates including date and time of their last card upload and the last activity included in that upload.
They can view key working times, weekly rest figures, and other drivers’ hours information including what time their next shift can start.
Drivers will also be able to view the work history screen which initially shows the last two weeks of information received by FTA including digital, analogue and data manually added such as holidays and sickness, as well as highlighting vehicles used and any infringements incurred.
Sam Varrall, product owner of the FTA Tachograph, said: “FTA is delighted to announce Driverfta which gives drivers a complete overview of working times, drivers’ hours and any infringements incurred.
“This enables them to take responsibility of their own hours, assisting them in planning their day more accurately and ensuring they keep within the legal limits.
“We have listened to the needs of our members and after long discussions have worked with them to develop innovative software to save time, money and improve compliance.”
