ELD & HOS FAQs
What Are Special Driving Categories?
Canadian ELD mandate accounts for off-duty use of trucks with the special driving category: personal conveyance or PC.
If your company allows drivers to use trucks while off duty, drivers will need to understand how to properly account for this time on their ELD. Your ELD software may have a soft button to toggle between “Off Duty” and “PC” time so that any PC drive time is recorded correctly on line 1 of the driver record (compared to line 3 where on-duty driving is captured).
What Is An ELD?
ELD or electronic logging device is a way for commercial vehicle drivers to automatically record driving time and Hours of Service.
What Is eDriver Logs®?
Trimble's Android-based ELD solution is designed to help drivers operate safely and enable them to maximize productivity and make the most of their available hours.
Is Trimble Prepared For The ELD Mandate?
The Canadian mandate requires that certification bodies (CBs) certify all ELDs for their use. Trimble's eDriver Logs® ELD was one of the first certified ELD compliant solutions to Canada's electronic driver logs mandate.
