The Transport Agency have the authority to approve an alternative means of recording matters (also known as electronic driver logbooks) relevant to monitoring work time. It is a requirement for a commercial driver to record their work time hours.  

Logbooks provide a record of matters relevant to the monitoring of work time and rest time a driver has accumulated during a cumulative work period.  

Traditionally logbooks have been paper based and require drivers to make handwritten entries however the Transport Agency now considers alternatives to paper logbooks and has introduced a application process for those persons wishing to develop an electronic logbook using the minimum specifications that can be found in the legislation.  

The Transport Agency have approved four electronic logbooks Xlerate, Sibatec, Logmate and ERoad.
