City of Seattle Driving Hours Regulations
Under Seattle regulations, you can be in control of a for-hire vehicle (for example, driving for a TNC) for up to 12 hours spread over 15 hours in any 24-hour period.
Driving Hours Tool
What does the Driving Hours tool do?
Launched on February 12th - you’ll get notified when you have:
- 2 hours left of driving time with Uber
- 1 hour left of driving time with Uber
- 30 minutes left of driving time with Uber
Once you hit the limit, the app will go offline to reset for 10 hours
What counts toward driving hours?
The new tool counts time spent driving while you’re online.
What about trips not on Uber?
You are responsible for keeping track of your total driving time on the road to ensure that you follow Seattle regulations.
