How to Use Personal Conveyance

The Personal Conveyance functionality allows drivers to operate a commercial motor vehicle and not have that time count against their drive time.


Company policy determines if a driver can use Personal Conveyance and it must be enabled in Encompass. Drivers can check this setting in KellerMobile by navigating from the home screen to Menu>System Menu>Records>Employee Rules. If a green check mark appears before Personal Conveyance Allowed, the driver can use this function.  

Logging Into Personal Conveyance

A driver can log into personal conveyance when they change their duty status to Off Duty. Click on the current duty status in the green navigation bar.


Click to check the box Authorized personal use of CMV?

Add a note stating the reason for the personal use of the vehicle in the Annotation field.

Click OK

The home screen will display the new status as Off-Duty - PC.

When the vehicle begins moving while in Personal Conveyance, the KellerMobile clocks will not display. Instead, the driver will see the following alert:

Logging Out of Personal Conveyance

On the home screen, a driver can also click on the Off-Duty - PC duty status in the green navigation bar. 

Select the new duty status desired. Click OK.


If the driver turns off the vehicle and turns it back on, they will receive a prompt after a few moments:


Selecting Yes will cause the next truck movement to show as driving on the log.

Selecting No will cause the next truck movement to show as personal conveyance.

Doing nothing or ignoring the prompt will cause the next truck movement to show as driving on the log.
