Drivers Exempt from ELD Requirements

Certain drivers are not required to log Hours of Service due to exemptions, vehicle type, or operating mode. For such drivers, you have the option to set their driver profile as ELD Exempt. This configuration allows them to use the Advaya Driver App without being concerned about unnecessary Hours of Service features or potential violations. Should a driver try to access HOS or related features, the Advaya Driver App will show a notification indicating their ELD Exempt status, along with the reason provided in the driver profile.
