    • Motive users can not edit automatically recorded drive time to a Special Duty Status (SDS), such as Personal Conveyance (PC) and/or Yard Move (YM) in accordance with FMCSA regulations.
    • However, Drivers can add annotations directly to their automatically-recorded trips within the Motive Driver App to label these events.
    • Law enforcement officials can view these annotations during roadside inspections.
    • Automatically-recorded driving time is recorded using the Motive Vehicle Gateway.

    According to the Regulations, Driver Edit Limitations, users can still classify an unidentified trip as Yard Move and/or Personal Conveyance when assigning it to a Driver.
