What Trucks are Covered by HOS Regulations?
Generally speaking, federal hours-of-service regulations apply to commercial truck drivers operating tractor-trailer trucks and 18-wheelers that weigh more than 10,000 pounds, have a gross vehicle weight rating of at least 10,000 pounds or are transporting materials in a quantity requiring placards and involved in either interstate or intrastate commerce. A vehicle can be a commercial motor vehicle based on its actual weight or its weight rating—whichever is greater.
