What is a DVIR?

A DVIR is a Driver Vehicle Inspection Report, a formal report whose purpose is to confirm the completion of a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) inspection by its driver, as required under 49 CFR 396.11 and 396.13 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.

Per 49 CFR 396.11, a driver must conduct a post-trip inspection of each vehicle they operate at the end of the day. Any discovered issues must be reported and corrective actions taken.

Per 49 CFR 396.13, a driver must conduct a pre-trip inspection at the beginning of each day by reviewing the last DVIR completed on the vehicle and verifying that the required repairs (if any) have been performed.

Together, DVIRs produced during pre- and post-trip inspections play a crucial role in promoting road safety and reducing the risk of accidents involving CMVs operating in interstate commerce (passenger-carrying CMVs are exempt).
