Fleet Administrators may designate that a driver is exempt from use of an ELD while using the Samsara Driver App.
Drivers who are not required to use an ELD may still use the Samsara Driver App and avoid Hours of Service violation notifications through use of the ELD Exempt configuration setting. This setting is configured by the Fleet Administrator on the Samsara Dashboard.

1. Navigate to the Settings > Drivers page.
2. Find a driver and choose Edit to show the Driver Settings page.
3. Toggle the ELD Exempt setting to Exempt, and enter a reason for the driver's exempt status.
