The Law

Do I Really Need an ELD?



The FMCSA site states: "The ELD Rule applies to most motor carriers and drivers who are currently required to maintain records of duty status (RODS). The rule applies to commercial buses as well as trucks. Canada- and Mexico-domiciled drivers are included, unless they qualify for one of the exceptions to the ELD rule."


The exceptions:

  • Drivers who use paper logs no more than 8 days during any 30-day period.
  • Drivers of vehicles manufactured before model year 2000.
  • Certain industries have received temporary exemptions or delayed rollouts
