How Long Can a Trucker Drive Before a Rest Break?

Commercial truck drivers must take regular rest intervals in order to maintain their ability to drive safely. The national guidelines established for drivers are known as the hours of service standards, and they are very important because they serve to protect other drivers on the road.

While a truck driver can spend many hours per week behind the wheel, overstepping the carefully designed guidelines established by the government is illegal and dangerous to others.

Hours of service standards found in the Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Regulations include the following:

  • Truck drivers may operate their vehicles for up to 13 hours per 14-hour workday
  • Truck drivers must observe 10 hours off duty
  • After a truck driver has reached his or her limit, they may resume driving after a 36-hour period of rest

By failing to observe these guidelines, drivers inhibit their own ability to drive safely. Fatigued driving is extremely dangerous and may result in:

  • Impaired judgment
  • Blurred vision
  • Lack of focus
  • Irritability resulting in aggressive driving
  • A slower reaction time

In fact, studies have shown that the risks associated with drowsy driving are comparable to the risks posed by driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
