    One of the requirements of the ELD Mandate is to send an output file to a DOT officer. The output file contains raw data that an officer can view to analyze the hours of service and the use of the Vehicle Gateway. The Motive Driver App allows drivers the option for ELD data transfer (to send the ELD output file) whenever they are pulled over for an inspection. You can have a look at the Inspection Reference Card details here.
