You always have the opportunity to provide additional notes and explanations related to the violation.  When added, such notes and explanations will become part of your logbook records.  See Adding Notes for more information. 

 

The types of violations that can occur are:

  • Overwork Violation - There are three possible scenarios:
    • If you have not taken a rest of 30 minutes or more after working or driving for longer than 5 ½ hours
    • If you have worked a total of more than 13 hours in a cumulative work day
    • If you have worked a total of more than 70 hours in a cumulative work period. 
  • Insufficient Continuous Rest Violation - You must take a 10 hour continuous rest within a cumulative work day of 24 hours.  You will violate this rule if you do not take your 10 hour continuous rest 14 hours from the time you start work.  
  • Insufficient Rest Violation - Typically occurs when you do not take the full length of the rest required.
