Do your Commercial drivers need Hours of Service training? If so than this training kit is for you! As you know, the Department of Transportation or DOT has established “Hours of Service” regulations for your drivers. The reasoning is that by monitoring and limiting the number of hours a commercial driver spends behind the wheel, you will better be able to control fatigue and subsequent accidents. This video will teach your drivers the requirements of logging their driving hours.
