    If I'm passing by the terminal and need to go take care of some personal business can I log off duty, get in my personal vehicle, go take care of my personal business, then go back on duty/driving and continue my day? Also if I spend an hour off duty can I work an hour later that day? I've asked 3 people and got 3 different answers.

    Yes.......

    No.......

    If/when you log off duty, your 14 continues to run until you have 10 hours off. Then it resets.

    There are some exceptions that are different, like logging sleeper....
    But, that wasnt your question & you cant log sleeper if your in your car driving around town taking care of business..

    taking one hour break wont stop your 14 hr clock.
    if you took 2hrs off you can do a split sleeper.
    hours left on your 11 and 14 when you clock out flr your break is what you will have when you end the two hrs.
    when you are done for the day the 8 hrs has to be in sleeper berth to make the split coumtnt

    You can work as long as you want, but you can't drive beyond 14 hours after you came on duty, unless you use the split sleeper berth rules to stop your clock.
