Welcome to Drivers Daily Log (DDL)
Welcoming Drivers, and Visitors Since 1998
Apr 18 2018 - New ELD law takes effect.
DDL is NOT a ELD or an AOBR and does NOT meet the requirements, if you need a ELD or have a AOBR, then you will need to purchase a ELD from other sources.
We do not plan on making DDL into a ELD.
If you have a 1999 or older truck or you meet other requirements, you can still use DDL. Check with your Motor Carrier to see if you need an ELD.
DOT is enforcement this new law as of Apr 18 2018, meaning you can get a citation ($$fine), CVSA points, and put out of service. If you do not have a ELD.
DDL will continue to offer the program to drivers that do not need a ELD.
Drivers Daily Log has a built in timer (9 months) from installation date. You will need to re-download and install at least once during this 9 month period, or DDL will stop accepting data. The version # and date may or may not change. After re-installing the timer will reset to 9 months. A warning will a pop up at 8 months and everyday during the last 30 days.
DDL will work fine on Windows 10, however you may need to update DDL to the latest version, then request a Activation code, if DDL stops working. Please provide the new InstallationID from the computer you need activated. Click on the Big Orange button above and follow all steps to avoid delays. DDL is not an app. Note: Before upgrading to 10, please check that your printer has the new windows 10 driver ready. Or you might not beableto print logs.

Sorry, no software development is planned for the iPhone, iPad, or android or other 'smart phone' at this time.
Microsoft in usual 'catch up with the rest of the world' is planning similar 'tablet' style (i.e. touch screen) units later this year that will run Windows 7. That is 'our target'...
We believe a user should have plenty of time to see if the software meets their needs.
Drivers Daily Log is very user friendly, however you will need some Computer/Windows knowledge. ie. Backing up files/folders, Copying/Pasting, Cutting/Deleting, Saving files, How to search using Google, How links work, How to use Windows Help system, and most important reading/understanding basic FAQ's 98% of all questions are answered in the FAQ's. If you do not have time or will not read the help/FAQ, as not taking the time can cost you money and time, by being placed out of service.
Not all users have the same knowledge, most will find that it takes a few hours, and you're up and running, some will require about two weeks. We recommend using just the Hours of Service, until you are comfortable. You should read the FAQ at least.
During the 30 days, please return here and explore the links, and the useful information the site is pack with.

"I have been using the Drivers Daily Log Program since January 2004. I began using the trial version and after about three weeks I decided to buy. I have found that DDL has saved me Time and Money and hassles with DOT and my safety department, in fact I with the help of DDL caught a problem with my safety departments computer system, the problem was that their computers had not been purged completely of the old HOS rules so that the new HOS system would work properly and after doing so DDL was to thank. And with the Great support and Patience of Nick and Bruce I was able to keep everything going after a major computer crash where everything was lost. You guys have the best customer support I have ever come across in the computer industry you two are truly a gift to the trucking industry with DDL. I am the only Driver that uses DDL at my company but I find other drivers are interested in DDL and I can honestly say I am proud to recommend DDL . DDL is the best way to stay Legal, Safe And out of trouble. Thank You Drivers Daily Log"
