- From the time you first go on duty after a 10 consecutive hour break, you are allowed 14 consecutive hours to use your 11 hour drive time
- You can drive up to 14 consecutive hours per day
- You must rest for at least 14 consecutive hours each day
- You are allowed to drive for 7 hours then must take a 7 hour break
Quote From Page 0 Of The CDL Manual:
The 14 Hour Duty Limit
This limit is usually thought of as a "daily" limit, even though it is not based on a 24 hour period. You are allowed a period of 14 consecutive-hours of duty time after being off duty for 10 or more consecutive hours. The 14 consecutive hour duty period begins when you start any kind of work (performing vehicle maintenance, loading / unloading cargo, fueling, etc.). Once you have reached the end of this 14 consecutive hour period, you cannot drive again until you have been off duty for another 10 consecutive hours.
Your driving is limited to the 14 consecutive hour duty period even if you take some off duty time, such as a lunch break or a nap, during those 14 hours.
Example: You have had 10 continuous hours off and you begin working at 6:00 a.m. (vehicle inspection, fueling, loading / unloading freight, etc.). You must not drive your truck after 8:00 p.m. that evening. You may do other work after 8:00 p.m.(load / unload freight, perform maintenance duties, etc.), but you cannot do any more driving until you have taken another 10 consecutive hours off.
The 14 hour rule quite simply means that as soon as you begin working for the day, regardless of what time it is, you have 14hrs to complete your day. Once your 14 hours are up, you may not drive again until you have had a minimum of 10 consecutive hours off duty, at which point, your 14 hour clock will reset.
- Be printed on a bright orange sheet of paper
- Have "HAZMAT" written on the top of the shipping papers

- Shippers to describe hazardous materials correctly and include an emergency response telephone number on shipping papers.
- Carriers and drivers to put tabs on hazardous materials shipping papers, or keep them on top of other shipping papers and keep the required emergency response information with the shipping papers.
- Drivers to keep hazardous materials shipping papers:
- In a pouch on the driver's door, or
- In clear view within immediate reach while the seat belt is fastened while driving, or
- On the driver's seat when out of the vehicle.
- All of these answers are correct
- Miles driven
- Road speed
- Engine use
Quote From Page 0 Of The CDL Manual:
Manufacturers of EOBRs must certify that their devices meet the minimum requirements. This includes a requirement that an EOBR must be mechanically or electronically connected to the truck to automatically record, at a minimum, engine use, road speed, miles driven, the date, and time of day. Drivers enter other information required to complete the hours-of-service records. The vast majority of EOBRs now use GPS tracking to meet these requirements.
Most EOBRs are integrated within satellite communication systems that drivers and dispatchers use to communicate with each other.
- Doubles/triples don't jackknife as easily as single trailer vehicles
- Doubles/triples are less stable than other commercial vehicles
- Doubles/triples are less prone to rollovers than single trailer vehicles
- Doubles/triples are easier to handle in windy conditions than single trailer vehicles
Quote From Page 80 Of The CDL Manual:
Take special care when pulling two and three trailers. There are more things that can go wrong, and doubles/triples are less stable than other commercial vehicles. Some areas of concern are discussed below.
Pulling doubles or triples are much more dangerous in nearly every aspect of driving, which is why they require an additional endorsement. Be extra cautious when driving a truck with two or more trailers.
