This feature is available only under Canadian ELD regulations, not in the USA, and will be available in early 2021.
When driving under Canadian ELD regulations, you can defer up to 2 hours of your required 10 hours off-duty time to the next day. You can do this under the following conditions:
- The deferred time is not part of the 8 consecutive off-duty hours taken on the first day.
- The deferred time is added to the 8 consecutive off-duty hours taken the next day.
- Over the 2 days, you are not able to exceed a maximum of 26 hours of driving, and you must take a minimum of 20 hours off duty.
To defer off-duty time:
- Go to the HOS Status screen.
- Tap Actions at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap ‘Off Duty’ Deferral.
- Review the time that you can defer, which can be up to 2 hours. You cannot defer off-duty time if you:
- Have already deferred off-duty time that day or the previous day
- Have already split your 8-hour rest break that day
- Are in violation
- Do not have any remaining off-duty time
- Are currently off duty
- Tap Confirm.
- You can now see your off-duty deferral time listed under the details of the HOS Status screen.
- The next day, when you sign in to the HOS app, you will receive a reminder that you must take the deferred off-duty time as part of your rest break. You must confirm the deferred off-duty time.
