If you want to completely refresh your driving cycle and clear all “rolling” hours, all you have to do is take 34 consecutive hours off-duty. The 34-hour restart has gone through some changes over the past year. Most recently, the requirement to log two off-duty periods between 1AM and 5AM within the 34-hour period was suspended. Now the rule is much simpler — you just need to take 34 consecutive hours off-duty to be eligible for a restart. This is the most up-to-date requirement for a restart and the only one you need to know.
