    So, I'm a feeder driver and I got sent back to package car this week. This was from the training that I took at ups a few weeks ago while in feeders. This says for cdl holders, package and feeders. Does this mean I have to do a log if I'm not off the clock by 12 hours, and I took my lunch break from 12-1 so if I'm not off work by 9, I have to take another 30 min break? Or, does this only apply when I'm driving a vehicle requiring the class a?

    I never do a log. That stuff is kept track of electronically. Just make sure to take your lunch and get off the clock before your 14th hour.

    Time spent parked does not count as driving time and would be a nightmare to log by hand.

    The Ivis is the same thing as a logbook. If your Ivis is working, you are keeping a log.

    Reread the very first line. Are driving more than 100(as the crow flies)miles away from your center?

    I'm asking about the 12 hour rule and log. No I'm not going farther than 100 miles

    Your log would be the DIAD and, yes, if you go over 12 hours, you would be required to take an additional 30 minute break.

    No, you don't have to keep a log.
