More Info

The purpose of the hours-of-service regulations is to keep fatigued drivers off the road , thus avoiding deadly crashes. For the safety of all CMV drivers, compliance with the hours-of-service regulations is set .

The Canada Hours of Service Training curriculum will help drivers and carriers to be compliant . With the available hours, they learn to use them in a safe and productive manner,

The hours-of-service rules don’t generally limit how much work a driver can conduct. They do prevent drivers from driving once the limits are attained. There are limits that measure the total hours of on-duty or work time. Another limit is set when the driver’s duty day begins. Finally, limits are set to track how many hours of driving have occurred.

There are two rulesets in Canada: rules for operating south of latitude 60°N, or the 60th parallel. The other set of rules concerns operating north of latitude 60°N. This training includes the rules for drivers operating south of 60°N. See the other modules for clarification on the northern rules.

The limits, rules, or “clocks” , track either a workshift consecutive or a cumulative period of time. The program identifies how all the limits or clocks work together. The outcome is that drivers aren’t operating a commercial vehicle when fatigued.

Canada Hours of Service Training: Limits South of 60th Parallel is designed to help drivers operating south of 60°N comply with the hours-of-service limits. They are provided with the understanding of how each of the limits or clocks work together. The impact is the avoidance of operating a commercial motor vehicle when fatigued, Drivers will identify when to take a break and when to rest to restart their hours.
