Questions and Answers

    Logs must be turned in every day to dispatch(unless you are away from the yard for more than one day at a time).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Logs must be turned in every day to dispatch unless you are away from the yard for more than one day at a time. This means that if you are away from the yard for more than one day, you do not need to turn in logs. Therefore, the statement "Logs must be turned in every day to dispatch" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    If you are pulled over, you should be able to show 8 days of logs.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When driving a commercial vehicle, it is a legal requirement to keep a logbook or log sheet to record your driving hours and rest periods. These logs are used to ensure compliance with regulations regarding maximum driving hours and minimum rest periods. If you are pulled over by law enforcement, they may ask to see your logbook to verify that you have been following the rules. Therefore, it is important to have at least 8 days' worth of logs available to show if requested. This ensures that you have a sufficient record of your driving activities to prove your compliance with the regulations.

    Logs, insurance documents, inspection books, and any other important paperwork should be within the arm's reach of the driver at all times.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important for the driver to have easy access to important paperwork such as logs, insurance documents, and inspection books. This allows the driver to quickly provide necessary documentation when required by law enforcement or in case of an accident. Having these documents within arm's reach ensures that the driver can easily retrieve them without having to search for them, saving time and ensuring compliance with regulations. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    An intrastate driver must be off duty for ________ consecutive hours to reset their on-duty day.

    • A.

      8

    • B.

      10

    Correct Answer
    A. 8
    Explanation
    An intrastate driver must be off duty for 8 consecutive hours to reset their on-duty day. This means that after completing their on-duty tasks, they need to have a continuous period of rest for 8 hours before starting their next on-duty day. This allows them to have sufficient rest and ensure compliance with regulations regarding driving hours and fatigue management.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    An oilfield company driver must be off-duty for _________ consecutive hours to get a reset of his or her 70 hour total.

    • A.

      24

    • B.

      34

    Correct Answer
    A. 24
    Explanation
    In order for an oilfield company driver to reset their 70-hour total, they must be off-duty for 24 consecutive hours. This means that they cannot engage in any work-related activities for a full day in order to reset their hours and comply with regulations.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Logs should be done in ______________ ink.

    • A.

      Black

    • B.

      Blue

    Correct Answer
    A. Black
    Explanation
    Logs should be done in black ink because traditionally, black ink has been used for official and legal documents. Black ink is also more visible and legible, making it easier to read and understand the information written on the logs. Additionally, black ink is more resistant to fading and smudging over time, ensuring that the logs remain clear and legible for future reference.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If there is a blank line on a log(such as "miles driven", "date", etc.) , it must be filled out before it is turned in to dispatch.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because if there is a blank line on a log, it means that some important information is missing and needs to be filled out before the log is submitted to dispatch. Filling out all the required information ensures that the log is complete and accurate, allowing for proper record-keeping and analysis.

    Rate this question:

  • 9.

    • A.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    All pre-trip and post-trip inspections must be flagged on a log.

    • A.

      False

    • B.

      True

    Correct Answer
    B. True
    Explanation
    All pre-trip and post-trip inspections must be flagged on a log to ensure that they are properly recorded and documented. This helps in maintaining a record of all inspections conducted, which can be useful for regulatory compliance purposes, monitoring vehicle maintenance, and identifying any potential issues or patterns that may require attention. By flagging these inspections on a log, it becomes easier to track and review the history of inspections, making it an important practice for ensuring the safety and proper functioning of vehicles.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    All changes of duty status must be flagged on a log, with city and state written.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    All changes of duty status must be flagged on a log, with city and state written. This means that whenever there is a change in the driver's duty status, it must be recorded on a log and the location (city and state) must be written as well. This is important for keeping track of the driver's activities and ensuring compliance with regulations.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Well-site delay must be marked on line 1 and line 5.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the passage clearly states that well-site delay must be marked on line 1 and line 5. This means that any delay that occurs at the well-site needs to be recorded on both line 1 and line 5.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    If you only mark well-site delay on line #1, you should be off the clock.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If you only mark well-site delay on line #1, it means that you are only recording delays that occur at the well-site on the first line of the form. In this case, if you mark well-site delay only on line #1, it implies that you are not required to record any additional delays that may occur elsewhere. Therefore, if you follow this specific instruction, you should be off the clock, meaning that you are not required to work or be on duty during those delays.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Well-site delay means that we can drive more hours in a 12-hour on-duty period.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    You are never allowed to drive more than 12 hours in an on-duty period. What well-site delay does is stretches your on-duty day period.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    On our logbooks, the blank to the right of line 5 is the total number of hours we were on well-site delay.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The line to the right of line 5 is the total of lines 1 through 4---this number should always be 24.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Lines 1, 2, 3 and 4 on a log must add up to 24 hours.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because if lines 1, 2, 3, and 4 on a log add up to 24 hours, it means that the log is accurately recording the passage of time. The total of 24 hours ensures that all the time intervals are accounted for and there are no discrepancies in the log.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    On letter A(total hours on duty last 7 days including today), you must put the total of line 3(drive time) and line 4(on-duty time)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The correct answer is true because when calculating the total hours on duty for the last 7 days, including today, you need to add the drive time (line 3) and the on-duty time (line 4) together. This will give you the accurate total for letter A.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    If I am on-duty from 2 AM to 3 PM, I can drive without a 15 minute break.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This guy was on duty for 13 straight hours....therefore, he must take a 15 minute break before he can drive. He might need an 8 hour break too.
