What is Hours of Service (HoS)?
The FMCSA’s Hours of Service (HOS) regulation governs the working and driving hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle. As a preventative measure to avoid excessive fatigue, drivers must comply with total daily allowance established by FMCSA and record duty status and its duration (off-work, on-duty, driving or resting) in an electronic logging device (ELD). Drivers will have to present their complete duty records to roadside inspectors when requested.
What is Electronic Logging Device (ELD)?
Electronic Logging Device (ELD) legislation replaces the manual Record of Duty Status (RODS) paper logs and must be installed in every vehicle that is federally operated by regulated carriers. It is meant to automate data logging to avoid inaccuracies and falsifications of records.
Drivers who have implemented AOBRD before the December 2017 deadline will have additional 2 years (until December 16, 2019) to transition to an ELD (Electronic Logging Device).

Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) Solution
Inspect by AT&T Fleet Complete is designed to simplify vehicle inspection reporting and assist a driver with road safety compliance. The driver follows an easy-to-use checklist, makes remarks of any known defects, and provides a signature right in the app. Reports completed by previous drivers for the same vehicle can also be accessed. All reports can be viewed immediately after their submission by supervising managers through the DVIR Web Portal for audit purposes.
Web Mechanic Portal
After the routine vehicle inspection is completed, defect logs are accessible on the Mechanic Portal. From there, a mechanic can select any vehicle from the list and view all the repairs needed and sign off straight in the portal when they are done. This will prompt a notification on the Inspect app, allowing the driver to keep or reject repairments.
ELD, Fleet Tracking, DVIR, and more, all from the same platform
Together with GPS Lockbox, AT&T Fleet Complete offers drivers a robust electronic logging solution, designed to simplify ELD compliance, DVIR reporting, avoid regulatory fines and gain greater insight into your fleet.
