What is a DVIR app and why do you need it?

A Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) app is a digital tool that helps commercial vehicle drivers complete their mandatory pre-trip and post-trip inspections electronically.

In the USA, DVIRs (Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports) are mandatory by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to keep commercial vehicles in top shape. By checking vehicles before and after trips, DVIRs catch problems early, preventing breakdowns and accidents.

What is required on the DVIR?

All the DVIRs should be filled out with the relevant data, including the date and vehicle identification number. However, the first thing the vehicle driver undertakes is inspecting the defects in the critical components, including brakes, lights, tyres, and mirrors. Ultimately, the driver and the mechanic (if repairs are necessary) sign off on the conclusions made on the inspection sheet.

Is DVIR mandatory by law?

A Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) is mandatory for every driver in the USA. They are required by Federal regulations - such as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) - to safeguard and secure commercial vehicles on the roads. For operators of commercial motor vehicles, such as trucks and buses, this paper will explain the daily vehicle inspection report (DVIR) before leaving and at the end of each trip. This plays a part in avoiding accidents and, at the same time, ensuring the safety of drivers.

Who needs DVIR?

DVIRs are mandatory for drivers operating specific commercial vehicles. This applies to drivers of large commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 10,000 pounds or more. It also includes passenger buses designed to seat nine or more passengers (including the driver) and vehicles carrying hazardous materials. By requiring these inspections and reports, authorities aim to improve road safety and catch potential issues before they cause accidents.

Are there any penalties for not complying with DVIR?

Bypassing the DVIRs can result in huge fines (up to $1270 in the US) from the FMCSA. The drivers risk being disqualified, and the truck may not proceed until the repairs are made and a report is written.
