How many hours can a driver work power day? And when you reach the driving limit can they bring someone out to drive for you?

14, yes.

3. ### 1029384756New Member

What If you punch out past midnight

14

5. ### 1029384756New Member

Im saying from 8:30 to just past midnight at 14 hours they had someone else drive

6. ### JackburtonGone Fish'n

Cool, and you still can't clock in for a driving job till 10 hours after you clock out, even as a jump seat warmer.

It was a friday

8. ### JackburtonGone Fish'n

Cool, so you got paid for 18+ hours that day.

9. ### 1029384756New Member

No 14 and some change

10. ### JackburtonGone Fish'n

This does not compute. If they had someone else drive from 8:30 to midnight that would be 18 hours total as the 8:30 is your 14 hour mark, minus a 1 hour lunch.

8:30 to 10:30 with a 1hour lunch then someone else drove from 1030 to 12:10

12. ### JackburtonGone Fish'n

You still get paid while on the car from 10:30 to 12:10.

13. ### JackburtonGone Fish'n

So to say your start time was 8:30am, you're 14 mark was 10:30. minus a lunch = 13 hrs + 1:40 mins = 14hrs 40 mins

Lunch counts toward the 14-hour limit since you are on duty. At 10:30, with or without an hour's lunch (always take your lunch) , you're not driving the truck anymore. After you punch out on a weekday, you may not punch into a shift coded as a driver for 10 hours.

What kind of dreadful route did you have this time of year that you had to work that long?

16. ### FrigidFTSupResident Suit

I think the better questions are how did they find someone with enough time to drive with him at 1030PM? and Why did the guy who came out not just trade vehicles with him?

18. ### MugarollaLight 'em up!

Not true.

DOT rules just say that you cannot drive without having 10 hours off.

If you are a jump seat warmer, you are not subject to DOT hours of service and can work unlimited hours.

19. ### MugarollaLight 'em up!

Yes you can as long as you do not drive.

It does not matter what the job is coded at.

DOT rules state that you cannot "drive" without 10 hours off.

As long as you are not driving, DOT rules do not apply.

They can code you as a driver, let you jump and you are not subject to DOT hours of service.

Cool. If you're young, milk it, find a good investment. If you're tired, throw a fit.
