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.

"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"
