Pre-Trip Vehicle Inspection VR Training Program Overview





A driver can make sure their vehicle is safe and operates efficiently by conducting proper vehicle inspections. This task is a regulatory requirement for drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs).

Vehicle inspections can help drivers find mechanical problems before they cause a breakdown or accident. This can help them avoid costly on-the-road repairs as well as delays in deliveries.

A thorough inspection can also help drivers avoid citations and out-of-service orders during a roadside inspection.
