Enabling the 100 Air-Mile Exemption

Hours of Service supports the federal 100 air-mile exemption, not the drivers salesperson or ready mix concrete 100 air-mile exemptions.
Support for the ability to enable and disable the 100 air-mile exemption must be enabled in your account.

The 100 air-mile exemption in the federal HOS regulations provides that you are exempt from keeping a duty status record under certain conditions:

You must operate within a 100 air-mile radius of your normal work reporting location.
You must return to the work reporting location and be released from work within 12 consecutive hours.
If you are a property-carrying driver, you must have at least 10 consecutive hours off duty separating each 12 hours on duty.
If you are a passenger-carrying driver, you must have at least 8 consecutive hours off duty separating each 12 hours on duty.
If you are a property-carrying driver, you must not exceed the maximum driving time following 10 consecutive hours off duty.
If you are a passenger-carrying driver you must not exceed 10 hours maximum driving time following 8 consecutive hours off duty.
Your employer must maintain and retain for a period of 6 months accurate and true time records showing your time spent on and off duty.

The 100 air-mile radius exemption is off by default and normal HOS rules are used. To enable the 100 air-mile radius exemption:

1.Go to the HOS Status screen.
2.Tap Actions at the bottom of the screen.
 

 
3.Tap Exemptions.
 


 

4.Tap the switch next to 100 Mile Exemption so that the indicator turns blue.
 

 
5.Tap Done.

If you are eligible for the 100 air-mile exemption, you can also enable the exemption from the Exemptions screen that appears when you sign in to WorkPlan.

When the 100 air-mile radius exemption is on, the WorkPlan app enforces the preceding 100 air-mile exemption rules and it does not show some of the normal HOS violations. If you drive outside the 100 air-mile radius or violate any of the 100 air-mile exemption rules, the exemption is turned off for the remainder of your work shift. Normal HOS rules are enforced. In this case, a warning message displays, and the text next to the rule set in the upper part of the HOS Status screen displays in red with a warning symbol.


 

Note the following when using the 100 air-mile radius exemption:

To be eligible for the 100 air-mile radius exemption you must start and end your work shift in the same location. This location can be your depot, your work reporting location, or any other location.
The 100 air-mile radius exemption must be enabled in the app for the entire duration of the work shift in which you are eligible. If you disable the exemption while you are still on duty, you might see a violation. We therefore recommend that you disable the exemption at the beginning of your next work shift when you are not planning to use the exemption.

To disable the 100 air-mile radius exemption manually:

1.Go to the HOS Status screen.
2.Ensure that you have finished your work shift and that you are in Off Duty status.
3.Tap Actions at the bottom of the screen.
4.Tap Exemptions.
5.Tap the switch next to 100 Mile Exemption to turn the exemption off.
