Question 1: Would a driver delivering an empty commercial motor vehicle designed or used to carry passengers, from the manufacturer or distributor to a dealer, or otherwise engaged in a "driveaway-towaway" trip as defined in § 390.5, be required to comply with the hours-of-service regulations for passenger-carrying drivers?

Guidance: No. The property-carrier hours-of-service rules in § 395.3 are applicable to drivers operating commercial motor vehicles designed or used to transport passengers in a "driveaway-towaway" operation, as defined in § 390.5.
