Check your hours of service information

This article describes how to use the dashboard to check your hours of service timers and how to use the various timers.

The Dashboard screen displays your hours of service (HOS) data. The top row highlights your current active status (and sub status, if applicable).

Your status can be one of the following:

  • OF: Off duty
  • SB: Sleeper berth
  • DR: On duty - driving
  • ON: On duty - not driving

The timers indicate how much of your HOS time you have used or is remaining.

The timers are color coded to warn you of HOS violations:

  • Blue: You are not in violation.
  • Amber: You are within 30 minutes of a violation.
  • Red: You are in violation or will be in violation if you start driving or go on duty.

 

30-Minute Break Due

If you are driving, this timer counts down from 8 hours to the next mandatory 30-minute break. To take the break, change your status to OF (off duty) or ON (on duty).

Time Remaining

This timer shows the remaining time of your mandatory, 30-minute rest break. It is displayed while you are either off duty or on duty, and it counts down from 30 minutes. When the time is up, you can continue to drive, provided you have sufficient driving time left.

Rest Until

This timer is relevant if you chose the Daily Reset or Cycle Reset sub statuses. After the 30-minute break period, the timer counts down the time required to reset (for example, 10 hours for a daily reset).

Daily Driving

This timer tracks your daily driving time, either used or remaining. The timer starts when you first start driving for the day. You can reset this timer only after you log 10 hours of off-duty time or if you use the split break provision.

You can choose whether to display hours used or hours remaining:

  1. Select the Since Daily Reset timer.
  2. Select either “Used” or “Remaining”.

The Used timer counts up from 0:00 and shows how much time you have spent driving today.
