    Greetings, asking because I can't find any wording and divers have different opinions. If you are being rescued because you ran out of on duty time, Can you driver a none commercial vehicle that belongs to the company ?
    example, Driver A runs out of hours, can dispatch send Driver B with a Honda Civic that belongs to the company so Driver A can drive back to the Yard while Driver B bring back the truck ?
    And can a rescued Driver sit in the passenger seat of the truck if he's being rescued ?

    Yes. So long as it's uncompensated time.

    Thanks for the reply.
    "uncompensated" that's a forbidden word in this unionized job

    He can be compensated for the next 30 hrs. straight, On Duty. You just can't Drive if you ran out of your 14 hrs.

    At the previous 2 employer’s the policy was, if the vehicle is an car, or a pickup smaller than 3/4 ton, you can drive it back to the yard, and be ‘on duty not driving’. Anything 3/4 ton or larger you had to be given a ride back to the yard, but remain ‘on duty’ the whole time.

    But, here's a rhetorical question; if the passenger vehicle was registered to the trucking company, would it then be considered a commercial vehicle?

    Straight out of the rules:
    1) 10,000+ GVW
    2) Designed for 8+ passengers and you are getting paid
    3) Designed for 15+ passengers regardless of being paid
    4) carrying haz mat.

    So in this case, no. It would be on duty not driving.

    You can actually stay On Duty in perpetuity (well, maybe not THAT long) so long as once you’re off, it’s 10 hours until you’re on again. I’ll try and find a link, but I’ve seen this question before, and the correct answer for driving a company Non-CMV was “On Duty”.

    Being "compensated" has absolutely nothing to do with HOS.
