If you are a commercial driver, you need to fill in a logbook. Logbooks provide a record of your work activity and enable enforcement officers to check compliance with the work-time rules.

Logbooks must be approved by the NZ Transport Agency, to make sure they record all the information required by law. Traditionally, they have been paper based and require drivers to make handwritten entries. However, the Transport Agency now approves electronic logbooks that meet the required specifications.

Approved electronic logbooks

To date seven electronic logbooks have been approved by the Transport Agency for use in New Zealand.

  • ERoad
  • Logmate
  • Sibatec
  • SmartMove
  • TeletracNavman
  • Trackit
  • Picobyte Solutions Limited (formerly Xlerate Technologies Limited)

These electronic logbooks should not be confused with GPS logbooks currently available on the market, which are designed to different specifications and standards.

How to apply to have an electronic logbook approved for use in New Zealand

As of April 2020, this content is currently under development. Should you wish to express interest or submit an application to apply for approval of an electronic logbook contact for further information.
