Hours of Service & Daylight Savings Time

Instructing drivers on HOS record keeping to accommodate Daylight Savings Time change


Daylight Savings Time began Sunday March 9. This annual event often generates common questions on how to handle Daylight Savings Time on the driver's record of duty status (log). The following "best practices" for the time change can help keep you compliant.

Daily log

There are no official regulations or interpretations addressing documenting Daylight Savings Time on the driver's record of duty status; it's somewhat open to interpretation.

When you "lose" an hour in the spring, your log for that day should show 23 hours of activity. Leave a blank column on the grid for the hour from 2:00 a.m. - 3:00 a.m. (i.e., skip over that hour). The driver should also write something in the

Remarks area like "DST" or "daylight savings."

If you are taking a required off-duty break at the time, make sure it's long enough without counting the lost hour.

Handling the 34-hour restart

Except for the "restart" option, the hours-of-service rules do not rely on "clock" time. The fact that the clock jumps ahead has no effect on the 11-hour driving limit, the 14-hour window (which is based on consecutive time), or the 10-hour off-duty requirement (also based on consecutive time).

 For a restart, the driver will still need to be off for 34 consecutive hours but the clock will say it was 35. For example, if the driver is off from 7 p.m. on the 7th until 5 a.m. on the 9th, that will be 34 hours on the clock but only 33 actual hours due to the time change. Therefore, the driver will need to start the break by 6 p.m. or stay off duty until 6 a.m. to satisfy the rule. In either case, the break must be 34 actual hours long and include the two 1-5 a.m. periods as shown on the clock (even if the clock jumps ahead) and start at least 168 hours after the start of the previous 34 hour break.
