Enabling the General Exemption Option

Support for the ability to enable and disable the general exemption must be enabled in your account.

If you are eligible for the general exemption you do not need to meet all ELD requirements. None of the normal HOS rules are affected by this exemption.

Your HOS log and the information screen in the Inspector mode show when you are exempt.

The general exemption is off by default and normal HOS rules are enforced. If the administrator has given you permissions within the Verizon Connect platform, you can enable the exemption from within the WorkPlan app. To do this:

1.Go to the HOS Status screen.
2.Tap Actions in the lower part of the screen.
 

 
3.Tap Exemptions.
 


 

4.Tap the switch next to General Exemption so that the indicator turns blue.
 

 
5.Tap Done.

If you are eligible for the general exemption, you can also enable the exemption from the Exemptions screen that appears when you sign in to WorkPlan.

To disable the general exemption:

1.Go to the HOS Status screen.
2.Tap Actions in the lower part of the screen.
3.Tap Exemptions.
4.Tap the switch next to General Exemption to turn the exemption off.

You can also disable the general exemption when you sign out of WorkPlan.
