DOT Hours of Service Record for Operations Within a 150-Mile Radius

Long-haul CDL drivers who travel outside of 100 air miles are required to take a 30-minute rest every eight hours and to log all of their activity during a 24-hour time frame. This includes everything from driving time, to fueling, to time spent sleeping.

DOT-regulated trucking or transportation businesses that operate primarily in a local jurisdiction qualify for the 100/150 Air Mile Radius Exemption. Our downloadable 150-Mile Radius Timesheet will help you track your miles in order to claim the exemption.

What Is An Air Mile?

An “air mile” is a nautical measurement of distance that excludes any twists or turns. If you’ve ever heard the phrase “as the crow flies”, this is describing an air mile. If your headquarters is located at Point A, an air mile is the distance you would travel in a straight line to Point B.

Who Needs the 150-Mile Timesheet?

The 150 air mile exemption is for non-CDL drivers who:

Operate within 150 air miles
Do not drive through any state that requires a CDL for the type of vehicle being driven
Report back to the same work location every day
Do not drive after the 14th hour of coming on duty in a period of seven consecutive days
Do not drive after the 16th hour of coming on duty in a period of two consecutive days

Stay compliant with this printable DOT hours of service record (driver timesheet) for operations within a 150-air-mile radius of the driver’s normal work reporting location.
