### According to the 34 hour restart rule, if you wanted to start at 5:00 A.M. Monday morning, when would you need to be done working?

• A.

7:00 P.M. Saturday night

• B.

6:00 P.M. Saturday night

• C.

4:00 P.M. Friday night

• D.

3:00 P.M. Friday night

A. 7:00 P.M. Saturday night
Explanation
The 34-hour restart rule states that a driver must take at least 34 consecutive hours off duty before starting a new workweek. If the driver wants to start at 5:00 A.M. on Monday morning, they would need to be done working by 7:00 P.M. on Saturday night. This allows for a full 34-hour period of rest before beginning the next workweek.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### You can only have one 34 hour restart every 7 days.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
According to the given statement, you can only have one 34 hour restart every 7 days. This means that after completing a 34-hour restart, you must wait for a minimum of 7 days before you can take another one. Therefore, the statement is true.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### If you only work for 7 ½ hours, you are not required to take a half hour break.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
If you only work for 7 ½ hours, it is not necessary to take a half-hour break because the law generally requires employees to take a break after working a certain number of hours. In this case, since the employee is working less than the required number of hours for a break, they are not obligated to take one.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### If you are shut down during the middle of the week for 34 hours, you could use that as a restart for the week.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Shutting down for 34 hours in the middle of the week would disrupt the flow of work and potentially cause delays or inefficiencies. It would not serve as a restart for the week, as it would require additional time to catch up on the missed work and reestablish momentum. Therefore, the statement is false.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### If you were to start your restart at 1:30 A.M. on a Saturday morning, what is the earliest time you could start driving again?

• A.

5:00 A.M. Tuesday morning

• B.

5:00 A.M. Monday morning

• C.

6:30 A.M. Monday morning

• D.

11:30 A.M. Sunday morning

B. 5:00 A.M. Monday morning
Explanation
The earliest time you could start driving again is 5:00 A.M. on Monday morning. Starting at 1:30 A.M. on Saturday morning, you would need to wait until 48 hours have passed to start driving again. 48 hours from 1:30 A.M. on Saturday morning is 1:30 A.M. on Monday morning. However, the given options only have times in increments of 30 minutes, so the closest option is 5:00 A.M. on Monday morning.

Rate this question:

### For your 34 hour restart, you must be off duty for 2 consecutive days between 1:00 A.M. and 5:00 A.M.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
To comply with the 34-hour restart rule, a driver must have two consecutive days off duty between 1:00 A.M. and 5:00 A.M. This means that the driver cannot work for a continuous period of 34 hours and then start driving again. The consecutive days off duty allow for sufficient rest and recovery time before resuming work. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

• C.

5:00 A.M. Monday morning

• D.

Explanation
If you start your 34-hour break at 3:00 P.M. on Friday, the break will end at 1:00 A.M. on Sunday morning. However, according to the hours of service regulations, you must take a minimum of 10 consecutive hours off duty before you can drive again. Therefore, the earliest time you can drive again would be 5:00 A.M. on Sunday morning.
