How to classify trips

Your mileage reports should include both the personal and business use of a vehicle in order to be considered fully compliant documentation for your deductions or reimbursement. 

With Driversnote you can easily classify each trip in the mobile app and on the website. You can also set your working hours in order to have your trips classified automatically based on the time of day.
If you don’t have set working hours in the app, each logged or recorded trip will be classified as the last one. So, if the last drive you took was “Business”, the next drive you track will also be classified as a business trip.


Driversnote users in the United States also have the options of classifying trips as “Charity” and “Medical or Moving”, besides the “Personal” and “Business” types.
