Guidance for § 382.107: Definitions.
Question 1: What is an owner-operator?
Guidance: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) neither defines the term "owner-operator" nor uses it in regulation. The FHWA regulates "employers" and "drivers." An owner-operator may act as both an employer and a driver at certain times, or as a driver for another employer at other times depending on contractual arrangements and operational structure.
