Exempt Logs (Android)

Encompass® ELD helps 150 Air-Mile-Radius exempt drivers track their hours. It warns drivers and creates grid logs when thresholds are met. Using the Exempt Log functionality must be enabled in the backoffice by the Encompass Administrator. 


When operating in an exempt driving status, the Driving Hours Available clock will be grayed out and display driving hours as N/A when the vehicle is in motion. 

Logging In - Exempt Driver 

Launch Encompass® ELD and login.


Select Exempt Log. The driver will be presented with the Exception confirmation screen listing the requirements they must comply with to create an exempt log for today. Select OK to proceed with the exempt log.


Select your current duty status.


The duty status in the green bar of the dashboard will indicate "Exempt".
