Can my logbook entries be deleted?

What happens if I no longer need them or want them?

Updated over a week ago

All entries made in the Logmate digital logbook are securely stored indefinitely and cannot be removed or destroyed.

For Drivers, you are required to:

  • Immediately produce your logbook upon request by any enforcement officer. This logbook must include entries from the current day and all previous days up to your last 24-hour rest break.

  • Keep your logbook for 12 months from the date of the last entry.

  • Deliver a copy of each logbook page to your employer within 14 days of completing that record.

For Transport Operators, you must:

  • Establish a process to regularly collect logbook pages from drivers and retain copies for a minimum of 12 months.

  • Periodically review logbook pages for any omissions and check their accuracy, including comparing entries against other records.

  • Organize logbook pages systematically to ensure no entries are missing.

Logmate's storage and management of logbook data meet all the above requirements, ensuring compliance even if you no longer have an active digital logbook subscription. For more details, please read our 'Data Storage' article.
