Free App Helps Truck Drivers Stay Connected, Fully Compliant and Informed

Penske Driver is a free, fully integrated and ELD-compliant custom app that provides drivers with easy Hours of Service (HOS) functionality to meet the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate for rental trucks. In addition to the app, Penske continues to permit drivers and fleets to use their own portable ELD systems in its rental vehicles. The Penske Driver app is a companion to the Penske Fleet Insight app.

How Does It Work?

The Penske Driver app quickly and easily connects using Bluetooth inside Penske's rental trucks. The app synchronizes with the truck engine to meet the ELD mandate requirements, and it remains connected to help drivers stay compliant. Activating the app is easy with assistance from Penske's rental associates, and managing your drivers' accounts is easy with Penske's intuitive Driver Management website.

Short-Term Truck Rental Exemption

Updates made by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration include an 8-day exemption for drivers of short-term rental vehicles. Drivers are still required to log hours, but with Penske, you have options.
