Introduction

Experienced drivers should have a strong understanding of the hours of service regulations. In order for supervisors to understand the many stresses put on drivers on a daily basis, they too need to know and understand the hours of service regulations. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. Drivers cannot be dispatched properly if their Dispatcher / Load Planner does not have a full comprehension of the HOS. 

During a DOT Audit, carriers may be required to produce a Dispatch Log and proof of how they track their driver’s hours to ensure compliance.  This includes log auditing and documentation, comprehension of the HOS as it applies to your operation, proof of route checking, trip documentation and a written HOS Plan & Policy.

This training program is a review of the basic hours of service requirements found in Part 395 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR), as they apply to property-carrying vehicles.

This training will help the supervisor gain a reasonable understanding of the hours of service regulations in order to improve scheduling and productivity pertaining to drivers.

Applies to Managers, dispatchers and supervisors for motor carriers engaged in the transportation

industry.  In addition, any other employee who reviews a driver's record of duty status, assigns

loads or makes work schedules should have a working knowledge of the regulations to stay in

compliance with the FMCSRs.

Applicable Regulations

  • 49 CFR 390.5
  • 49 CFR 395.2
  • 49 CFR 395.3
  • 49 CFR 395.8

industry.  In addition, any other employee who reviews a driver's record of duty status, assigns

loads or makes work schedules should have a working knowledge of the regulations to stay in

compliance with the FMCSRs.

The FMCSRs do not specifically require training in driver logs, but §390.3(e)(i) - (e)(2)

requires the motor carrier, drivers and other responsible employees have a clear understanding of the regulations. Employees and supervisors who oversee the activities of drivers should have an understanding of the hours-of-service regulations before performing such tasks. The only way to ensure this understanding is through carrier training and documentation.  Recurrent training may be necessary if violations are discovered, or a lack of understanding is evident.

CSA allows for a variety of DOT audits.  There are targeted audits when you percentages reach a threshold limit.  There are full audits due to your CSA scores or because your "number is up".   There are New Entry audits that occur within the first 18 months of obtaining a new DOT authority.   

Audits happen for all reasons.  Disgruntled drivers may report you to the DOT and trigger an audit.   Companies without "how's my driving" stickers often find themselves a target of a DOT audit as the public has no recourse but to call the DOT when they do not know how to reach the company.
