    Yes, if you have completed your hours of service (HOS) before the 8th day and are following the 8-day, 70-hour passenger cycle rule, you will need to wait until the 9th day to restart your HOS cycle.

    • According to HOS regulations, if you've exhausted your 70-hour limit within an 8-day period, you must take a break until the start of the 9th day to reset your HOS cycle.
    • This means that you cannot restart your HOS cycle on the next day; you have to wait for the 9th day to begin a new cycle.
    Note: It's crucial to understand and comply with HOS regulations to ensure safe and legal operations.
