Is the CDL Warrior App Compliant with Regulations?
Yes. CDL Warrior is compliant with ‘paper’ logbook regulation (49 CFR 395.8) and electronic records regulation (49 CFR 390.31). Please note, while many inspectors accept the electronic version or email version, some inspectors may insist on a paper copy of log. Therefore, we recommend that drivers have ability to print log in cab.
UPDATE: On July 10, 2014 the FMCSA released clarification to make it explicit that a Record of Duty Status (RODS) completed and signed electronically on a smartphone is compliant with existing regulations (395.8). To see the clarification as published in Federal Register website, CLICK HERE
