[WEBSITE] How to change your TruckersMP time zone (And then see when your ban expires)

Recommended Posts

Hello truckers !


You're ban is over but stil you can't connect ? It keeps saying that you are banned but in the website it says that it should have ended an hour ago ? Here is an explanation about why this is happening.


The first thing one should know is that bans are applied following the UTC/GMT+0 time.


For instance :




Means that the ban will expire today at 8:42AM in UTC/GMT time.



How to convert local time into UTC/GMT Time ?


1. Find you're Time Zone

You need to know where to place you're country in a map




2. Convert you're local time into UTC/GMT time


Go to this website




As we can see ahad, the ban insued by @Cooper's Freightmaster ends at 8:42AM UTC time.


  • So i'll add 8:45 here




Then you'll get to the next page by pressing "Submit",

  • it's time to add you're country/city so you'll have the conversion.




This means that when it will be 8:45AM UTC, it will be 10:45AM for me in Belgium (CEST +2)

So, the ban will be over at 10:45AM.


You can also change you're timezone in the truckersMP's website so it'll do the conversion for you



I hope this will helps.

Many people have been complaining about their ban not expiring, and most of the time it's because they haven't changed their time zone on the website. Therefore, this guide will show you how to change your timezone. :)


First, go onto http://truckersmp.com and log in as normal.


Next, hover over "My Account" then click settings.




Next, click on "Site Settings", and then there's a drop down box with different time zones- select your own. In my case I'm selecting London because I live in the UK.






Now you can go to your profile and view when your ban expires at http://truckersmp.com/profile, and now you don't need to worry about incorrect time zones.


So there you go, a quick guide on how to change your site timezone. Hope this helps someone! :)
