After a driver has accepted your invitation to become one of your drivers on the Logmate Platform they will need to have a Logbook Subscription in order to use the Logmate Digital Logbook. There are two ways a driver operating under your TSL number can have a Logmate digital logbook subscription:
The driver can purchase their own subscription and mange it themselves. You will still be able to see all their logbook entries, work-time balances and violations to satisfy your Worksafe requirements. To learn more read the articles Creating A Driver Account and Buying A Subscription
Alternatively, you can purchase and manage subscriptions for your drivers through your Operator Admin Portal
Which option you choose depends on your specific business needs and operations. To learn more go to the Pricing Page on our website!!
Note: Drivers only need to hold one active subscription. If you want to provide a subscription to a driver who already holds one you will need to get that driver to cancel their existing subscription first.
