   What is Drivers Daily Log Software (DDL)?


The Drivers Daily Log program implements the requirements of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) PART 395 - HOURS OF SERVICE OF DRIVERS. DDL always has the “most current” Federal DOT interpretations. Changes are updated as needed . It helps to produce the Driver's Record of Duty Status - the Log Book (RODS). The program takes the power of the computer and applies a convenient entry of duty status data, displays that data in the "classic" Driver's Daily Log format, and prints the signature ready log pages for submission to your motor carrier,  and if necessary ,DOT inspectors.  DDL also implements the 'adverse conditions' provision that allows +2 hours to driving time. DDL has the new 2005 rules as default. (Screen Shot)

USA Intrastate Rules:

DDL implements the most common intrastate rules for Florida, California, Alaska, Washington, Texas, and Illinois.



The program implements the rules as defined in the Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Regulations, 1994’. The special Permits driver regulations have not been implemented yet. The 60th Parallel driver rules have been implemented as an option.

We are working on the new 2006 rules that will take effect on January 1, 2007 in Canada. This should be ready in the next few months. Click here to see what the new rules will be.

Canada Intra-Province Rules:

DDL implements the most common intra-province rules for Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon Territory, Northwest Territory.

General Discussion:

DDL will also produces a Monthly Summary of hours worked which includes Hours of Service Violations if any. The program implements the 11 Hour, 14 Hour,  Split Sleeper Berth rules, 34 Hours restart, and 60hrs/7days, and 70hrs/8days rules. These rules are used to analyze the duty status data allowing the driver to better plan for Trips and their day.   In addition, the program provides for California intrastate drivers, Alaska drivers, and the special provisions for Oil Field, Well Operations, Construction, and Utility drivers that can reset the clocks with 24 consecutive off duty hours. The program will also do Noon to Noon log sheets.

With the use of ‘grid markers’ a driver can see where the 11/14 hours, S1-for 1st Sleeper (which excludes from the 14 hours), S2 for the 2nd sleeper (which allows a driver to drive again), 10 hours breaks, so the driver knows when the 11/14 hours clock resets, 34 hours restart, and when 60/70 hours violations will occur. (Screen Shot1), (Screen Shot2), (Screen Shot3)

DDL will also show how long the driver has been in violation,the rule that is being violated, and which FMCSA code is being violated in the remarks section, and can be printed on the log and grid. (Screen Shot)
