What is DVIR?
It is a Driver Vehicle Inspection Report. DVIR in trucking is a document on the technical condition of the truck that the driver fills in every day of work. It indicates whether any potential defects or issues could impact the safe operation of a vehicle. And if there are, which ones exactly?
When a defect or deficiency is reported, action must be taken to repair the vehicle issues that would affect the safe operation, and signed by the driver or mechanic that the vehicle is safe for operation. DVIR is in the DOT truck inspection checklist. In addition, the trucker's pre-trip inspection can be viewed at roadside inspections.
