Improve Fleet Safety with Vehicle Inspection History

Improve Fleet Safety with Vehicle Inspection History

A vehicle operating in unsafe condition is a hazard to your driver, your cargo, and to your business.  Part 396.13 of the Federal Regulation requires that, before driving a motor vehicle, a driver must:

  • Be satisfied that the motor vehicle is in safe operating condition;
  • Review the last driver vehicle inspection report; and
  • Sign the report, only if defects or deficiencies were noted by the driver who prepared the report, to acknowledge that the driver has reviewed it and that there is a certification that the required repairs have been performed.

The regulation aims to prevent unsafe operation of commercial vehicles and to protect fleets from potential liability.

Now, with the KeepTruckin ELD, your drivers have easy access to the last inspection report for any vehicle they connect to. Drivers will be able to review any defects last reported for the vehicle and sign the inspection report to make sure their vehicle is in safe operating condition before they drive.

As soon your drivers connect to a vehicle using the KeepTruckin ELD, the KeepTruckin App will automatically fetch the last inspection report for that vehicle.

1The driver can review defects in detail and sign the DVIR as a reviewing driver.


On the KeepTruckin Dashboard, you will be able to make sure your drivers are regularly reviewing inspection reports with defects.
