ELD Roadside Inspection Reference Guide for Drivers

What to Do with Your ELD Solutions Device During an Inspection

  1. Be sure to specify that your device is an AOBRD if you are using an AOBRD versus an ELD.
  2. Keep your device mounted until the officer asks to see your logs so that the officer can see that you have it mounted and visible to the driver.
  3. You are not required to email or print your logs if you are using an AOBRD. Your device display is sufficient. Just make sure that the officer can view the display outside of the cab.
  4. Put your device into “Roadside Inspection” mode. This mode will only show the data needed for the inspection and require a password to exit and access additional data.
  5. When asked if the device is registered on FMCSA, tell the officer that your device is listed as “ELDS HOS”.
  6. If requested, you should be able to provide the following materials to the officer:
    1. Instruction manual that came with your ELD
    2. The Quick Reference Guide or Instruction Sheet that came with your ELD
    3. 8-day supply of blank paper logs (driver to use in the event of a malfunction)

Additional Tips:

  • Don’t wait until the end of the week to certify your logs. Certify logs daily.
  • Always provide written notification of ELD malfunction to the carrier, keeping a copy for your records.
  • Complete all log information.
  • Always fill in CMV power unit number, trailer number, and shipping document number information.
  • If you fall under a special driving category or exemption, select or notate the appropriate choice in your ELD.
