For Everyone's Safety

A motor coach driver's hours of service are strictly regulated by federal and provincial laws. These laws
limit the number of hours a driver can drive in a day, the length of a work shift, and the number of work hours
a driver can accumulate over the course of a 7- or 14-day period.

Canada's Driver Hours of Service Rules

Drivers are allowed to drive for 13 hours and must have at least 10 hours off-duty in a 24-hour day. The
minimum break between work shifts is 8 hours; however, under no circumstances can the work shift break
be shortened. After 16 hours has elapsed since the driver started work, the driver cannot drive a bus again
until 8 consecutive hours of off-duty time. Drivers cannot exceed 70 hours on-duty in a 7-day period, and
drivers must have at least one full day (24 hours) off in the preceding 14 days.

If These Limits are Exceeded

The driver and the bus company can be charged and fined, threatening the bus company's operating
privileges. The driver can be placed "out of service" at a roadside inspection. Additionally, the law makes the
user of the transportation service responsible for compliance and subject to prosecution in cases in which
the driver is requested, required or allowed to exceed the allowable limit.

How will Anyone Find Out?

Driver's log books can be examined at any time during a trip by police or government transportation
enforcement officers. Audits of driver and company records at the bus company's premises will detect hours
of service violation.

Reminder to Tour Operators and Tour Directors

Please don't ask your driver to break the law by exceeding these limits. After all, the safety of your group is
the number one priority. In addition, you can be charged under the law for a driver's hours of service violations.

The above information is only a brief overview of the hours of service regulations. The rules governing driver
hours of service in both countries are complex, and to ensure compliance, reference must be made to the official statutes and regulations for both countries. For further information, contact info@motorcoachcanada.com.
