Modifying Driver ELD Logs

You can suggest changes to driver logs only if they are already certified by the driver. Any edits are only recommendations and can be approved or rejected by the driver per FMCSA requirements. The carrier might suggest edits to a driver’s ELD records to ensure accuracy after reviewing a driver’s submitted and certified records. However, a driver must accept or reject any proposed changes to implement the edits on the driver’s ELD records. When the driver accepts to confirm the carrier edits, the driver must recertify and resubmit the records.

NOTES:    

Any edits or additions to duty status in a driver's logs are reflected in the HOS Violations Report and/or the Driver Timesheet Report, as applicable, after the driver has approved the edit.

You cannot modify automatic driving time (driving status) per FMCSA rules, you can only add a Remark to account for discrepancies.

You cannot modify a status immediately following automatic driving time but you can add a Remark.

Example:  If a driver stops driving, forgets to change status, but leaves the engine running, the driving time continues to accumulate. After six minutes, the driver is automatically prompted to change status. If there is no response, the ELD automatically changes the status to On-duty.

The six minutes that the driver is standing, but accumulating driving time, can only be edited with a Remark in the driving event. Also, since you cannot edit the the On-duty status following driving time, you cannot insert a new duty status, just add a Remark. The driver is notified on the ELD the next time they login that there is an edit to accept or reject.
