When are DVIRs Requird?

Start of the day

At the start of a driver’s shift they must review the last DVIR completed on the vehicle. If there are defects noted from the last post-trip inspection, these must be reviewed and signed off. The driver must also confirm that the other aspects of the commercial motor vehicle are in good condition with a thorough inspection of the vehicle. This is often referred to as the pre-trip inspection and outlined in Federal Law 49 CFR 396.13

End of the day

At the completion of the day’s work, the truck driver must complete a walkaround inspection of the vehicle. This is specified by Federal Law 49 CFR 396.11. If the driver operates more than one vehicle, a separate DVIR must be completed for each vehicle. If any issues are found, the truck driver must report defects to their fleet manager so that corrective action can be taken. Before the no-defect rule took effect in 2014, paper forms were required to be filed even if no defects were found in an inspection.

A standard DVIR should cover:

  • Brakes and air system
  • Steering mechanism
  • Lights and reflectors
  • Windshield wipers
  • Rear view mirrors
  • Coupling equipment and fifth wheels
  • Safety and emergency equipment
  • What should be inspected can vary from vehicle to vehicle, and Electronic DVIRs make it easy to tailor DVIR checklists for specific vehicles and equipment in a fleet of vehicles.
