Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    DRIVERS, WHO OPERATE COMMERCIAL MOTOR VEHICLES OVER 10,001 POUNDS NEED TO TRACK HOURS OF SERVICE?

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    Drivers who operate commercial motor vehicles over 10,001 pounds need to track hours of service because it is a federal regulation mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). This regulation is in place to ensure that drivers do not exceed the maximum allowable driving and on-duty time limits, promoting safety on the roads and preventing fatigue-related accidents. By tracking their hours of service, drivers can ensure compliance with these regulations and avoid potential penalties or fines.

  • 2. 

    DRIVERS WHO OPERATE A COMMERCIAL MOTOR VEHICLE AND DRIVE WITHIN 100 AIR MILE RADIUS MAY USE EITHER A LOGSHEET OR A TIME CARD

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    Drivers who operate a commercial motor vehicle and drive within a 100 air mile radius are allowed to use either a logsheet or a time card to track their hours of service. This is because these drivers are exempt from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations that require electronic logging devices (ELDs) to be used. Instead, they can choose to use a simpler method such as a logsheet or a time card to record their hours. Therefore, the statement "Drivers who operate a commercial motor vehicle and drive within a 100 air mile radius may use either a logsheet or a time card" is true.

    Correct Answer
    B. 11
    Explanation
    A driver may drive up to 11 hours in a 24-hour period if utilizing a logsheet. This is because there are regulations in place that limit the number of hours a driver can be on the road in order to ensure their safety and prevent fatigue-related accidents. By keeping track of their driving hours on a logsheet, drivers can ensure they are not exceeding the maximum allowed driving time.

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    According to the given information, a driver who operates a commercial motor vehicle and falls under the "local" definition can work a total of 12 hours in a 24-hour period if they remain within a 100 air mile radius. This implies that if the driver stays within this radius, they are allowed to work for a maximum of 12 hours within a 24-hour timeframe. Therefore, the statement is true.

    A DRIVER WHO OPERATES ON LINE 3 (DRIVING) FOR A 5 HOUR PERIOD THEN GOES TO THE OFF DUTY NOT DRIVING LINE (LINE 4) FOR 2.5 HOURS AND THEN GOES BACK TO LINE 3 (DRIVING) FOR A 3.5 HOUR PERIOD WOULD HAVE A TOTAL OF HOW MANY HOURS ON THE DRIVING LINE?

    Explanation
    The driver operates on Line 3 (driving) for a total of 5 hours, then switches to Line 4 (off duty not driving) for 2.5 hours, and finally goes back to Line 3 (driving) for 3.5 hours. Therefore, the driver has a total of 5 + 3.5 = 8.5 hours on the driving line.

This is important because it allows for accurate tracking and documentation of the shipments that are being made. It includes details such as the origin and destination of the shipment, the date and time of shipment, and any special instructions or notes related to the shipment. Having this information on the log sheet ensures that all necessary information is recorded and can be easily referenced if needed.

    When documenting the pre/post trip inspection, it is necessary to show a period of at least 15 minutes on line 4 (on duty not driving). This indicates that the driver has spent a sufficient amount of time inspecting the vehicle and ensuring its safety before or after the trip. It is important to document this time accurately to comply with regulations and ensure the proper maintenance and safety of the vehicle.
