Hours of Service (city and inner city)

Course Description

This course gives a full understanding of how to comply with the Ontario Hours of Service regulations that limit the number of hours drivers can operate commercial vehicles. The course covers application of the rules in a city or inter-city operating setting. This course is based on Canadian Trucking Alliance driver handbook “Hours of Service for Commercial Drivers”.

Why this is important

Every driver of every commercial vehicle in Ontario must comply with rules that restrict when and how long a driver can continue to drive that vehicle. Drivers that operate within a radius of 160 km have some exemptions for the requirement to keep a logbook but they must still comply with the rules. Records must also be kept by the employer for every driver.

Who should take the course

Drivers, managers, trainers and operations personnel will understand the rules and will learn about the behaviors and systems that must be in place to stay compliant. Course Information
