     Driver Log Book Regulations

     Industry Segment HOS Rule Sets

     State Specific HOS Rule Sets

Get Started
Although most Motor Carriers will be required to use Electronic Logging Devices (ELD), the rule sets vary by Industry Sector.
The DOT HOS Regulations ("Final Rule") that went into effect on July 1, 2013 consisted of many variations depending on the Transportation Industry Sector which is defined in detail in section 395.1 of the Regulations.  A full description of the rule set can be found on the FMCSA Website.

The provisions that took effect in July 2013:

•     Limit the maximum average work week for truck drivers to 70 hours, a decrease from the previous maximum of 82 hours;

•     Allow truck drivers who reach the maximum 70 hours of driving within a week to resume if they rest for 34 consecutive hours, including at least two nights when their
      body clock demands sleep the most - from 1-5 a.m., and;

•     Require truck drivers to take a 30-minute break during the first eight hours of a shift.

ELD Final Rule has been published to the Federal Registry on December 18, 2015.
Motor carriers have until December 18, 2017, to comply with the final rule, requiring the use of ELDs by interstate drivers of commercial motor vehicles who currently use a Drivers record of duty status to record their hours of service.

Motor carriers that install and require drivers to use automatic on-board recording devices (AOBRDs) according to the specifications in Section 395.15 may continue to use the AOBRD until December 16, 2019. The final rule requires motor carriers to install FMCSA-registered and certified ELDs that meet specific standards on their commercial motor vehicles.

The specific standards include mandating that the device be connected (“integrally synchronized”) to the engine of the vehicle so that driving time can be automatically recorded. Also, the devices must automatically capture date and time, vehicle position, and vehicle operational parameters.
