Being a licensed Class 4 commercial driver, you are expected to follow the ‘Hours of Service’ regulations. These directives are pretty straightforward to uphold as a rideshare driver.
The Hours of Service regulations state that a driver can either be On-Duty or Off-Duty. In plain-speak, you can be online for 13 hours in a day before requiring a minimum of 6 consecutive hours of Off-Duty time. For Lucky To Go drivers, the Driver app will keep track of your On-Duty time for you.
Here are some examples of being On-Duty:
Enroute or waiting for a pickup
Performing pre-trip inspections
Fueling or replenishing rider snacks
Time spent delivering deliveries
Taking your car for a safety inspection

Daily pre-trip inspection
Ride-Hailing vehicles in British Columbia must conduct a pre-trip inspection before the first trip of each day to ensure that the vehicle is in sound mechanical condition.
