May a motor carrier request an extension to the 8-day period to correct, repair, replace, or service a malfunctioning Automatic On-board Recording Device (AOBRD)?

Yes, if the AOBRD malfunction prevents accurate hours-of-service recording. The motor carrier must submit a request to the FMCSA Division Administrator (DA) in the State of the motor carrier’s principal place of business within 5 days of driver notification of malfunction.
