When a Canada/Mexico domiciled motor carrier’s driver is operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) and is stopped for an inspection in the U.S., how must the driver verify hours of service (HOS) compliance if required use an ELD?

  • A driver operating in the U.S. must have evidence of the hours worked for the current 24-hour period and the previous 7 days.
  • A driver operating in the U.S. who is subject to the ELD rule must record all time operating in the U.S. on the ELD.
  • A driver operating in the U.S. may record time operating in Mexico/Canada using one of the following methods:
    • Records of duty status (RODS) on paper for time operating in Canada/ Mexico during the current day, and during the previous 7 days,
    • An AOBRD display or printout of records of duty status, or
    • ELD data transfer that displays the driver’s RODS for any operations both inside and outside the United States.
