I’m Tulsa lawyer James Wirth. An out-of-service order for an Oklahoma commercial driver is a notice issued by law enforcement or inspectors from the Department of Transportation. It is given when a driver is found to be in violation of federal transportation laws or regulations. These violations can be related to the driver’s condition, the number of hours they’ve been driving, or any other federal violation regarding transportation and commercial vehicles. The order prohibits the driver from operating a commercial vehicle for a specified period of time.
The period of time for an out-of-service order can range from 24 hours to several months or longer. During this time, the driver must complete the specified time and take steps to rectify any issues related to their violation. Only after addressing these issues, will they be allowed to drive again.
