Neenah, WI - Year after year, Hours of Service violations top the list of driver violations found during roadside inspections.

To help motor carriers combat this, J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. developed its new Hours of Service Rules for Property-Carrying CMV Drivers training program.

“Hours of Service training is still essential, even if your drivers use ELogs,” said Mark Schedler, transportation management editor for J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “Electronic tracking is to the minute, so unless drivers understand Hours of Service, they may still generate an excessive number of violations just because they aren’t clear on FMCSA requirements. And, if you haven’t transitioned to ELogs yet, an Hours of Service training refresher can help your implementation go more smoothly.”

Hours of Service Rules for Property-Carrying Drivers walks drivers through key regulatory areas such as on-duty vs. off-duty time; 11-hour, 14-hour, and 60-/70-hour limits; the mandatory-break provision; and some of the more widely used exceptions. It also explains how to track Hours of Service using automatic onboard recording devices, electronic logging devices, and paper logs, and reminds drivers how Hours of Service compliance affects their company’s CSA score.

At the core of the DVD program is a 26-minute video, which is supplemented by three bonus videos: Exceptions to the Hours of Service Rules, ELD Basics, and How to Fill Out Paper Logs. The program is also available in Video Training Book, Online Course, and Pay Per View Video formats. For more information, visit
