    Alright so I’ve gone over and over the FSCMA website about the short haul exemption. I run oilfield and am rarely outside the 150 air mile radius from my terminal.

    my question is this

    I’m a new O/O (authority active next week) and was wondering if there’s a time frame I have to wait in order to use the exemption.

    I’m planning on having an ELD installed just incase I switch operation but do I have to pass my first audit before I can claim exemption?

    As long as you’re operation qualifies for the exemption you can use it.

    If you end your work day ate the same place you started it, like your terminal, you are probably ok.

    Q#1: No, Q#2: No

    I run mostly within the 150 air mile radius; however, I do have a couple DH's that go over, but not by much. Either way, I'm back to the home 20 end of the run. Depending on the distance, I have both, a daily local sheet (<150) and paper log (>150 & pre '99 truck). I keep both in the truck to show my past activity for at least 7 days as required, and yes, I run Interstate..

    I honestly go back and forth.

    Some days I do the 150 Mile work and others I log into my ELD and go over the road.

    You just have to make sure you have time cards to back up your local work that matches BOL - same thing for OTR. Have to have the ELD files that match the BOLs
