    The company that I deliver trucks for has a Express Van they want me to deliver. Will be delivering from Maryland to New Jersey. Weight and size are no issue. There is a DOT# assigned to it and does have the company info and DOT# on it. My question is do I still need to run a log? I feel pretty sure unless a weigh station says all commercial vehicles I can bypass. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    I honestly don't know. But...it takes less time to fill out a log than it does to write a check for the fine involved for not running one. Cheaper, too.

    Is this your normal job duty ? Are you a paid driver that delivers vehicles (any kind) ? This might play into it. Pay for driving. it's a one day delivery, right ?

    Yes. I normally deliver trucks that require I run a log and have a medical card. Also have to go through weigh stations. I am paid by the hour with all expenses paid, ie fuel, accommodations and flights back if needed. This run is one day. A chase driver is following me and will bring me back. I only deliver to this one customer with locations across the country. Thanks.

    Compensation has no bearing of duty status, or log book requirements.

    well if you normally run a log book etc, why don't you run one this time ?
