Do all trucks need electronic logs?
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced the final ELD rule in December 2015. It requires electronic logging devices for all trucks model-year 2000 or newer engaged in interstate commerce.
What trucks need ELDs?
A3. The ELD applies to most motor carriers and drivers who are currently required to maintain records of duty status (RODS) per Part 395, 49 CFR 395.8(a). The rule applies to commercial buses as well as trucks, and to Canada- and Mexico-domiciled drivers.
What year trucks are exempt from ELD?
Generally, the model year is determined by reviewing the VIN on the vehicle registration. If the model year is pre-2000 based on the VIN, an ELD is not required.
