ELD FAQ11: Electronic Logging Devices and Hours of Service

Frequently Asked Questions:  Electronic Logging Devices and Hours of Service: ELD Display for Yard Moves and Personal Conveyance

Question 11: How will the ELD display screen or printout reflect special driving categories; yard moves and personal conveyance?

Guidance:  While not required, if the motor carrier configured the driver user account to authorize a special driving category, then the graph-grid will overlay periods using a different style line (such as dashed, dotted line, or shading) in accordance with section 4.8.1.3(c)(1) of the ELD Functional Specifications, Appendix B to 49 CFR Part 395. The appropriate abbreviation must also be indicated on the graph-grid.

If the motor carrier does not configure the driver user account to authorize special driving categories, then the driver must annotate the beginning and end of the applicable special driving category.
