If a driver forgets to indicate the start of Personal Conveyance (PC) or Yard Moves (YM), they cannot later edit that automatically generated driving event to PC (Off Duty) or YM (On Duty Not Driving). According to FMCSA guidance, the ELD rule does not allow driving time to be shortened for correcting special driving category selection.
If a driver forgets to select special driving categories (Personal Conveyance or Yard Move) at the beginning or end of the special driving category, then the driver can make an annotation in the ELD record identifying the start and end of the special driving category.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to annotate the ELD record using the HOS247 app:
a. Tap the "Menu" icon located at the top left corner of the screen.
b. Select "Logs." On the "Logs" screen, choose the day when the incident occurred.
c. Locate the "Pencil" icon to the right of the "Driving" event you want to annotate.
d. Select "Notes" and write down the reason for moving the vehicle. Mention that you forgot to select "Personal Use". Tap "Save" when you are done.
