Hours of Service


Over the past several years, the Canadian provinces and territories have been working through the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) to modernize the commercial vehicle drivers’ hours of service rules by reflecting the advances in scientific research into human sleep patterns and fatigue management practices.  These rules reflect advances into research on fatigue and establish the maximum hours a driver can operate a commercial truck on a highway.

The new hours of service rules will help commercial drivers get the necessary rest required to safely operate their vehicles. These new rules also help keep Ontario’s roads safe. The hours-of-service regulations apply to drivers of the following types of vehicles:
** Commercial motor vehicles having gross weight or registered gross weight over 4,500 kilograms

Taylor Truck Training Services – and in working under the guidelines of The Ministry of Transportation (MTO), we provide an education to assist drivers and carriers in adjusting to the new rules. Commercial drivers and/or carriers are encouraged to adopt the new rules.
