A DRIVER VEHICLE INSPECTION REPORT (DVIR or VIR), is a formal record confirming that a driver has completed an inspection on a commercial motor vehicle. Inspections are carried out at the beginning of the day, before work begins, and also at the end of the day when driving is finished (called the pre-trip inspection and post-trip inspection).
Vehicle inspections are an important part of a truck driver’s daily routine and they are essential to keeping vehicles in good condition, while ensuring road safety and fleet compliance.
With all the compliance issues these days, you are running a risk if you still maintain paper logs.
A DVIR includes several basic steps, including the inspection, identification of defects, signing the report, and corrective action.
In the United States, completing a driver vehicle inspection report (DVIR) is a requirement based on federal regulations 49 CFR §396.11. Vehicle inspection rules also exist in other countries and jurisdictions, such as the province of Ontario in Canada.

Geotab Drive 4.0 features a more user-friendly Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting (DVIR) workflow. Users can integrate Geotab’s DVIR solution into an existing inspection process with minimal effort. New prompts and visual feedback allow users to quickly and easily certify and review an inspection or repair.
In the new Geotab Drive 4.0 DVIR Workflow, previous and new inspections are separated. This allows the driver to verify repairs and assess the safety of the vehicle prior to starting a new inspection. If one or more defects were not adequately repaired, the driver can mark the vehicle as unsafe, and the defect(s) will carry forward to the new inspection.
