What is driveaway-towaway operation?

Often discussed in relation to ELD exemptions, driveaway-towaway operation means an empty or unladen motor vehicle with one or more sets of wheels on the surface of the road being transported between and/or from the manufacturer’s or dealership facilities to the purchaser, as well as a number of other specific scenarios. In addition to the previous conditions, a vehicle may be exempt if its being transported to a repair facility or via a tow-bar.
