Beyond the Basics

You must make sure your drivers master the basics of following the Hours of Services rules, and recording them properly. Only then should you go beyond the basics.

There are many exceptions or slightly different rules, depending on your driver’s circumstances. The next part of this module will teach these special rules.

Is your driver working for more than one carrier?

If your driver works for another carrier, all on-duty time must be recorded. The driver must complete their daily log marking all time spent working for you or another carrier.

The original daily log goes to the first carrier the driver worked for, and a copy goes to the home terminal of each of the others carriers. Two originals are against the law.
