Go to Vehicles > Maintenence. Then click on the DVIRs tab.

Entering a DVIR

Click the orange +DVIR button to add a new DVIR.


The first section of the DVIR entry screen allows the user to enter the basic information about the DVIR:

  • Unit
  • Date of the inspection
  • Inspection Type (Whether it's a Pre- or Post-Trip)
  • Time of the inspection
  • Odometer reading (Note: In order for the Odometer field to display, the selected Unit must be a powered unit, not a towed unit)
  • Turn the toggle on if there are no defects. 

Click Next when all information has been filled out.


If defects were discovered, check any defects that need(ed) repair. Click Next.


Toggle on "Resolved" if the defect has already been resolved.


If there are no defects, you will be taken directly to the notes section. Enter any Notes needed for the inspection. Then, click Next.



Toggle on/off Condition of the Vehicle is Satisfactory depending on the vehicle's condition. Search for and select the submitting driver.
