Welcome to the official pages of the Digital Tachograph in Spain. As of 1 January 2006, all vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tonnes, or which can transport 9 or more persons, including the driver (save certain exceptions) and which are registered for the first time, must install the new digital tachograph.
The Ministerio de Fomento has created these pages in order to inform the different parties involved of all the necessary steps for the implementation and use of the digital tachograph, and of the procedures required for applying for, issuing and replacing cards.
In addition, the Ministerio de Fomento provides a free teaching tool to assist professionals in the sector to understand the operation of the digital tachographs. For this purpose they have designed a virtual simulator which simulates the operations of the available devices made by various manufacturers, in most of the situations which may occur during daily use.
