Vehicle Inspection Reports

The federal motor carrier association announced recently a change in their rule making that removes the requirement for property carrying commercial motor vehicles to submit post trip vehicle inspection reports (DVIRs) when no defect is found by or reported to the commercial driver.

Motor carriers must continue however, to maintain a DVIR process, where drivers submit DVIRs when a defect is discovered by or reported to the commercial driver. An example would be a defect noted on a roadside inspection, needs to be noted on a DVIR that the driver completes for that day. This provision will be in effect on the day it will be published by the FMCSA, which is December 18, 2014.
