California – Trucking Companies Required To Maintain Electronic Logging Device Information

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) now requires interstate motor carriers and truck drivers to use electronic logging devices (ELD) to keep records on driving time, mileage, and other service hour data. Although, the DOT only requires ELD records be retained for six months, the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) encourages you to keep your ELD records for at least eight years.
