NOTE: This training covers HOS rules as they exist through September 28, 2020. It does not include rule changes that go into effect September 29th, which provide increased flexibility for drivers and carriers. These revisions affect the 30-minute break rule, the 100-air-mile exception, the sleeper-berth options, and the exception for adverse driving conditions. Since the rules add flexibility, drivers and carriers that continue to observe the current rules will remain in compliance even after September 29th. The new provisions are included in our NEW Hours of Service Training program, which can help you ensure that drivers who are going to take advantage of the additional flexibility know how to do so correctly.

The purpose of the hours of service (HOS) regulations is simple: to keep tired drivers off the road. After many hours behind the wheel, fatigue sets in, and it can lead to bad decisions and deadly crashes. For the safety of all drivers, compliance with the hours of service regulations has been required of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers since the 1930s.

This truck driver training program will give you an overview of the FMCSA's hours of service rules, exemptions, and how to stay in compliance.

    • Discuss the purpose and importance of hours of service regulations

      • Daily 14-Hour (on duty) Limit, 11-Hour (driving) Limit, and the Mandatory Break Provision

      • Exceptions to the weekly and daily limits
