Every commercial driver in California is required to keep a logbook that is updated within the prior 24-hour period. Failing to maintain your logbook up to par with the rules and regulations will automatically put you in logbook violation. In a situation like this, we would recommend that you seek professional help to find out the best way for you to proceed. At times, if your truck is in violation of certain equipment, your company will take on the responsibilities of the citation so that your driving record is not affected by it. However, as a commercial driver having certain endorsements and qualifications, you are required to refuse driving the vehicle unless your company has corrected the errors.
