GotQuestions? ELDs and Telematics

Q. We hired an owner-operator as one of our fleet’s drivers in January. He has a grandfathered AOBRD. Can he still use it even if the rest of the fleet is using an ELD solution?

A In this situation, yes, the owner-operator employee can use his AOBRD as long as it was installed prior to the Dec. 18, 2017, ELD rule deadline.

This driver should be made aware, however, that he will have to upgrade to a certified ELD by December 2019. This is particularly important if this driver is a regular employee who expects to be employed with your fleet when the AOBRD exemption expires.
