Record driving time as personal use

Leer en Español

If you want to record driving time as personal use, this must be authorized by your administrator.

The easiest and preferred way to record personal driving time is by using the Personal Use substatus on the Off Duty status. This functionality must be enabled in your account. If it is not available to you, contact your administrator.

An alternative method for recording personal driving time is described below. It is a less preferred approach than using the Personal Use substatus because the personal driving time counts towards LogBook’s HOS driving time and can therefore lead to HOS violations in LogBook.

To record your personal driving time without using the Personal Use substatus:

  1. Make sure that you record the start time of your personal driving time. You can do this outside the app somewhere (for example, by adding an entry into your calendar) or by adding a note to an off duty or on duty status change right before you start driving.
  2. Start driving.
  3. Stop driving.
  4. Make sure that you record the end time of your personal driving time. You can do this outside the app somewhere or by adding a note to an off duty or on duty status change right after you have stopped driving.
  5. Edit your logs so that all statuses between the start and end of your personal driving time have a note stating that the status was for personal use.
  6. Make sure that you follow HOS regulations for all driving and on-duty time that is not part of the personal driving time.
