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 Waka Kotahi 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, Waka Kotahi now approves electronic logbooks that meet the required specifications.

Approved electronic logbooks

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