Call your logs department. You should be able to edit the on duty to off. Nothing you can do about the driving. You may be able to annotate it. However, it's still your drive time.

So call them and get them to adjust it and I won't have the violation anymore I know they can't edit the drive line I'm fine with that as long as I don't get the violation does it sound like I understand to you im a newer driver

Scott is probably asleep, but what he did advise you, is EXACTLY correct. Your company CAN and WILL correct your logs, if you can not.

Hopefully, you've already done this.

If not, FOLLOW that, and/or CALL YOUR LOGS / SAFETY people. My husband drives intrastate , and we have this conundrum at times. It's a quick call to Safety (which is also logs department at his company) and all is well.

Just my 3 cents;

Intrastate:

The act of purchasers and sellers transacting business while keeping all transactions in a single state, without crossing state lines to do so.

And this brings up a very important thing to remember. Log off your elog when ever you are not in your truck doing truck stuff. Especially if the truck need to be moved by a mechanic to fix stuff. When you log back in the elog will ask you if you want that time accounted to you, refuse the time and call the log department so they can get the right coding on the maintenance time.

Elog:

Electronic Onboard Recorder

Electronic Logbook

A device which records the amount of time a vehicle has been driven. If the vehicle is not being driven, the operator will manually input whether or not he/she is on duty or not.

We can edit our logs. Yes, call your logs department. It's not a major deal if you don't make a habit of it. We cannot change drive time. I forgot to log out once and messed up a 34 when my truck went into the shop. I'll never make that mistake again.

I've had this issue before. All it took was a call to my supervisor (I'm local) and he told me to certify my logs as correct and he then edited the drive time off. Our logs don't allow the office to edit until I certify it, then I must approve any edits they do. I'm able to edit all duty status except driving. In my instance I went off duty but didn't log out of the truck and it was moved 7 hours later. Definitely get a hold of whoever does logs and get it to be accurate.

Big Scott does CFI not edit your drive time in that instance when you have proof you weren't the one moving the truck?

I will try to remember to call my logs department tomorrow. As far as I know my log department cannot do anything I can't.

Logs tells us they cannot edit drive line period. If you log out it goes to unassigned driver which they annotate.
