Got Questions? ELDs and Telematics

January 16, 2018

Q. E LOG EXEMPTIONS, I KNOW ENGINE MODEL YEAR 2000....IS THAT THE STAMPED DATE ON MOTOR OR THE MODEL DATE ON THE TRUCK ? THANK YOU. EXAMPLE : TRUCK IS DATED 2000, ENGINE IS 1999.

A. The FMCSA has clarified that it is indeed the engine year, not model year.

From the FMCSA:

There may be instances where the model year reflected on the vehicle registration is not the same as the engine model year, most commonly when a vehicle is rebuilt using a “glider kit.” In this circumstance, an inspector/investigator should use the model year on the engine to  determine if the driver is exempt from the ELD requirements. If the engine model year is older than 2000, the driver is not subject to the ELD rule.

 Please refer to the FMCSA website or your local DOT department for more details on your specific ELD requirements.
