Something can be both easier and more confusing at the same time. That is certainly the case when discussing Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs). While the technical standards are some of the most complicated of all the regulations, for drivers, creating a duty status is easier and more accurate when using an ELD because much of the recording is done automatically.
Hours of Service Training: ELD Basics is designed to help drivers compliantly use ELDs and correctly use the special driving categories of personal conveyance and yard move. This will help drivers understand their role in reducing unassigned driving events, when to edit the record, and the importance of reviewing the record before submission.

- Discuss when drivers are required to use an ELD
- Identify the five items required to be in the cab when recording hours with an ELD
