Knowing what you have in terms of ELD and how it works is paramount if you want to get through a DOT roadside inspection. Here are a few quick tips.

  1. Understand what technology (AOBRD or ELD) is in your truck and be able to articulate that to the inspection officer
     
  2. Be able to explain to the officer how the system works and what method of log inspection is applicable (electronic transfer or visual)
     
  3. Finally, make sure you have all the other requirements for your system on hand like backup paper logs and user manual for the device

Follow these steps and your next DOT driver log inspection should be smooth sailing.
