Hours of Services Auditing
Even with ELDs, you still must audit?

Don’t be caught by surprise with a driver hours of service violation! Auditing your drivers records each month can alert you to violations or reporting errors, allowing you to correct the problem for the future.


Failure to keep complete records, violating Hours-of-Service regulations, turning off their ELD or falsifying log books can result in thousands of dollars in fines, being placed out-of-service, and even potential jail time! 

In addition, knowing how to audit these records,  what you should look for, and how to present your company's records during a DOT investigation is key to a successful DOT compliance program.
