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 city and inter-city operations, as well as sleeper-berth and U.S. operating settings. 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 Canada and the U.S. must comply with rules that restrict when and how long a driver can continue to drive a commercial vehicle.
Single and team drivers using a sleeper berth have additional rules to contend with. Operating in the U.S. means complying with the U.S. rules, and crossing the border involves switching from one set of rules to the other.
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
