This can be done by going onto the “GBA Browser” on your phone and simply selecting the “Tachograph Analysis” icon (fig 1). The fleet team will shortly be issuing you with a log on name and password which you will be able to change to something more memorable on your first log in. If you need to access this on a personal device, you can visit and enter your details. Once you have logged on by selecting the option for ‘charts’ you will be able to see a calendar with your driving hours’ data.

The current scores for these areas are 88.92 and 87.42 respectively as shown in the charts below. The prime reason the RIBAS unit have been fitted is to improve the safety of our drivers and other road users.
