Frequently asked questions

Is a DVIR required by law?

Completing DVIRs is required for all commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) by the United States Department of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). See here for more information.

How does Verizon Connect DVIR software work?

The software allows drivers to use a mobile app to complete a digital inspection report. The driver marks each item as pass or fail, adds photos or comments, and then signs and submits the report. That data flows into the main system, where a mechanic or other user can pull a report of all inspections completed in the desktop application.

How does DVIR for Reveal help my business?

This is all made possible by storing the DVIR data in a central place on the Reveal platform.

How can DVIR for Reveal help with vehicle maintenance?

When communication with mechanics about potential vehicle issues is improved, maintenance tends to be proactive, and vehicle issues can be more quickly resolved.

How do you fill out a DVIR with Verizon Connect compliance software?

The driver will use their mobile device (a smartphone or tablet) to click through the screens in the prefilled form of the inspection report. They will select pass or fail on each item, and they can add notes to report defects or attach photos for further clarification.

Is Verizon Connect DVIR software customizable?

Currently, there are two prefilled form options with 10 and 28 inspection items that meet Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs).

What items are in the checklists?

The checklists includes inspection points for the service brakes, parking brakes, horn, steering mechanism, lights and reflectors, windshield wipers, rearview and sideview mirrors, emergency equipment, tires, wheels, rims, and more.

How long do you need to keep a DVIR?

Federal regulations require that you keep a driver’s vehicle inspection report and any certification of repairs for three months. Our system allows for reports to be stored for 12 months.

Are DVIRs the same as pretrip inspections?

A driver vehicle inspection report must be performed before a driver begins for the day (pretrip inspection) and at the end of the day (post-trip inspection). Learn more on this topic here.

Is the DVIR software stand-alone, or do I need other software?

Our DVIR solution is part of our integrated GPS fleet tracking system.

Does the DVIR software work on my smartphone?

Yes, the DVIR mobile app can be used on Apple or Android devices, including smartphones and tablets. Learn more about our mobile apps here.

What happens if I don’t currently keep DVIRs?

Not completing DVIRs or not keeping records of them can subject your company to fines from the Department of Transportation (DOT) in the U.S. Because the purpose of the DVIR is to catch major issues regarding the safe operation of vehicles before they become a safety hazard, not completing DVIRs could lead to driving vehicles which may have a defect and could put your drivers and others at risk.
