Rule sets and exemptions

A rule set is a collection of rules that is applicable to the region that your drivers are driving in. The rules define how long they are allowed to drive or be on duty, and how long breaks need to be. As an administrator, you can define your drivers’ rule set in Reveal, and drivers can’t change their rule set in the LogBook mobile app. Below is a list of rule sets that are supported in LogBook.

Exemptions are changes to the hours of service that are defined by the rule set your drivers are using. Exemptions apply in certain circumstances. In most cases, drivers can choose whether or not to use an exemption that they are entitled to. Below is a list of exemptions that are supported in LogBook.
