In your truck 8 days.
I believe for whomevers authority you run under must keep them for 6 months
7 or 8 days. 8 I think
Pat ask LogsRus she would be able to tell you or any other thing you need to know about logs she is great
8 days in the US.
15 days when you go to Canada.
nooo canada! i think that was the only good thing to come from me getting a DUI 10 yrs ago!!
Your carrier is supposed to keep them on file for 6 months, you only need 8 days, or 15 if going into Canada, I keep mine for tax purposes and to verify experience, if needed in the future.
ahh, i knew the DOT could look back over the last week but i thought i had to heep last 3 or 6 mo on hand. maybe that is for O/O?
O/O are offered the same procedures as the companies. They receive notice and provide them at the office of their operation. There is never a need to carry more than 2 weeks.
good deal then. i was cleaning out my truck earlier to make it easier when i swap trucks next week. i still had over a yrs worth of logs under the bunk LOL
