We require each driver to make one vehicle inspection per day. Each driver must perform a thorough pre-trip inspection prior to beginning his or her shift. Driver must be “on duty, not driving,” while performing the pre-trip inspection.
We require each driver to make one post-trip inspection per day. One DVIR (daily vehicle inspection report) must be completed on the QC per day.
