Hours of Service — Explanation of Rulesets and Exemptions

The application supports most of the current hours of service regulations. Depending on where your business operates, select the ruleset that applies to your drivers.

Rest Limit: The maximum amount of time before having to take a 30 minute rest break in order to continue driving.

Driving Limit: The maximum amount of driving the driver can do in their current shift.

Duty Limit: This is a non-consecutive limit. This is the amount of time that a driver can work (ON duty + Drive time). OFF/SB time does not count towards this limit.

Workday Limit: This is a consecutive limit. From the moment the driver first goes ON duty, the amount of time they have before they have to stop driving for the day. Please note that time spent in OFF duty and SB are counted towards this.

Consecutive OFF duty time: The amount of time the driver has to spend in OFF/SB (or equivalent) before they can reset their duty, workday or driving limits.

Cycle Limit: The amount of time the driver can spend working (ON duty + Drive time) in the specified cycle.

Cycle Reset: The amount of time the driver has to spend in OFF/SB before they can reset their cycle limit. Please note that these are optional.

Sleeper Berth: The sleeper berth provision supported for the specific ruleset. These allow you to gain a “reset” in a different manner than staying in OFF/SB for a set period of time.

Notes

Note

Description

Split-Sleeper Property

Due to the changes to the Final Rule (Sept. 2020) drivers who successfully split their sleep can exclude both the ‘small part’ and the ‘large part’ of their split from the workday. Due to this, the driver must advise the system they are planning on splitting in order for the system to accurately predict availability.

Example. A driver who started their day at noon, takes a 2 hour OFF duty period starting at 5pm. At the end of this 2hr period (7pm), they simultaneously have 2 different workday availabilities:

7 hours of workday if they are NOT completing a split, OR

9 hours of workday if they ARE completing a split.

In order to show the driver the correct availability the system will look at the ruleset they have currently chosen. Rulesets including ‘with Split Sleeper’ will always assume the driver is going to Split Sleep whenever possible, and as such, will calculate availability as if the driver will pair viable periods together. This means that the driver may need to complete a split pairing when their availability runs to zero. Drivers are expected to know the rules and requirements of split sleeping if they have chosen this ruleset.

If a driver is not going to complete Split Sleep, and they have chosen a ‘with Split Sleeper’ ruleset - they do risk a violation appearing in the past if they do not complete a split that the system anticipated. In this scenario, the driver should select the applicable ruleset option that does not include ‘with Split Sleeper’

Drivers can freely change back and forth between options to see availability based on Split Sleeping or not at any time during the day.

All USA Federal Interstate Property rulesets have available ‘split versions’

Split Sleeper - Passenger, Canada, Texas

Rulesets for USA Passenger, Canada, and Texas do not require a special ’Split Sleeper’ rulesets as detecting applicable Sleeper Splits can be done by the ruleset itself due to the mechanics of the Split mechanism. Note however, that these rulesets will always assume Split is taking place if the driver meets the condition of the Split.
