Hours of Service Driver Training Program - Video Training
Includes all current Hours of Service rules drivers must comply with.
The FY 2015 Omnibus Appropriations bill, signed by President Obama on December 16, 2014, suspends the two 34-hour restart restrictions for which compliance began on July 1, 2013.
Enforcement is being suspended for these two restrictions:
- A 34-hour restart break must include two 1:00 a.m.-5:00 a.m. periods
- A 34-hour restart can only be taken once every 7 days (168 hours)
The new law allows commercial truck drivers to restart their weekly 60/70-hour on-duty calculation by getting any period of 34 consecutive hours off duty.
The new law remains in effect until September 30, 2015, or until the FMCSA completes a study involving the use of real drivers in their natural environment.
This training program has been completely updated with information regarding the specific language within the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2015.
