DOT Hours of Service – Frequently Asked Questions 

May the driver of a property-carrying vehicle be on duty for more than 14 hours?

Yes. A driver can continue to work beyond the end of the 14th hour of the day, but may not drive a commercial motor vehicle (unless using one of the 16-hour exceptions). The additional on-duty time will reduce on-duty time available under the 60/70-hour time limit.

Does a truck driver need a 30-minute break every 8 hours of driving?

The 8 hours are consecutive hours, so they include driving and all other time (including any breaks that are less than 30 minutes). The hours of service rules say you have to stop driving when you reach 8 consecutive hours past the end of your last break of at least 30 consecutive minutes.

Does the 30-minute break apply to drivers of passenger-carrying vehicles?

No. The 30-minute break requirement only applies to property-carrying CMV drivers.

Is the 34-hour restart provision optional?

Yes, the restart provision is optional. For example, a driver who works 8 hours per day, 7 days per week, would never need to use the restart provision because he/she would never reach the 60- or 70-hour limit. Drivers may continue to keep a running total or “recap” of their hours over the past 7 or 8 days and “do the math” each day to determine when they may need time off before driving again. In some cases, getting a restart will be the quickest way to get back on the road.
