Use the Split Sleeper Berth sub status

This article describes how to use the sub status Split Sleeper Berth when changing your HOS status manually on the Dashboard screen.

If you want to split your daily reset break into two parts using the Split Sleeper Berth break, you must ensure the following:

  • One break must consist of at least 7 consecutive hours spent in the Sleeper Berth status.

  • The other break must consist of at least 2 consecutive hours spent in the Sleeper Berth or Off Duty status.

  • The total of the two breaks must be at least 10 hours.

The steps for changing your status differs slightly on Android and iOS devices. See Log off-duty time for the differences.

To use the Split Sleeper Berth break:

  1. When you are ready to take the first part of your break, stop driving.

  2. You can choose whether to take the shorter or longer part of your break first. Ensure you follow the rules mentioned above. Log off-duty time as either SB (sleeper berth) or OFF (off duty). If you selected SB, select the sub status Split Break.

  3. Take the first part of your break.

  4. When you are ready to go on duty or drive again, log on-duty time. Any driving time between the two rest breaks counts towards the work shift after both rest breaks.

  5. When it is time for the second break, you must take a break that is long enough so that both breaks add up to 10 hours.

    For example, if your first break was 7 hours spent in the sleeper berth, you must take at least a 3-hour break as your second break. Remember that your longer break must be spent in the Sleeper Berth status.

    Log off-duty time as either SB (sleeper berth) or OFF (off duty). If you selected SB, select the sub status Split Break. In this case, the Sleeper Berth status icon changes to display the split break.
