The main objective of this CMV driver logs session is to provide you with the information you need to complete the daily driver’s log fully and correctly. By the time the session is over, you should be able to identify and make a record of duty status requirements; complete the daily log correctly; log changes of duty status accurately on the grid; and retain and submit logs in a timely manner.
