FMCSA To Hold Hours Of Service Question And Answer Session. Attend a live Hours of Service (HOS) Question and Answer session with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) subject matter expert Tom Yager, Chief of the Driver and Carrier Operations Division, and Peter Chandler, Lead Transportation Specialist in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Passenger Carrier Division.

The Hours of Service regulations address the number of hours that a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver may be on the road and the number of hours a CMV driver may be on duty before a required period of rest. In addition, the regulations address permitted driving time based upon a driver’s on-duty hours in a “work week.”

The hour-long session will allow participants the opportunity to submit HOS related questions and have them answered by FMCSA’s HOS Subject Matter Experts. Participants may email their questions in advance of the live question and answer session to NTCHost@dot.gov or submit their questions during the session.
