The more hours that you are available to drive, the more miles you can go, and the more money you can make. Learning to manage your time and logbook correctly is a huge part of your success as a driver.

You will be required to take a 34-hour break after driving 60 hours in 7 days, or 70 hours in 8 days.
Time management will come with experience, but we are always here to help.
Increasingly, and soon to be by-law, companies are using electronic logbooks to track drivers hours, rather than paper. This generally requires more drivers to be driving "by-the-book".
