With DVIR, drivers complete inspection reports alongside HOS (Hours of Service) logs. Fleet Managers can review/edit past reports and manage the driver/mechanic signature workflow.
Drivers may submit inspection reports in the Samsara Driver App following the steps below:
1. Click on the green DVIR button:
2. Click Create DVIR > Select the type pf DVIR you would like to perform (i.e. Vehicle or Trailer)
3. Fill out the form, including vehicle, inspection type, odometer, vehicle defects, trailer defects, and safety status > Next > Certify and Submit.
On DVIR view, click Add Report.
Fill out the form, including vehicle, inspection type, odometer, vehicle defects, trailer defects. Mark the vehicle safe to drive, sign and save.
Sign and submit the report.
In the Samsara Dashboard, the report will appear under Maintenance > DVIR.
Here mechanics can review all DVIRs, and address both Safe and Unsafe vehicles. When resolving a DVIR [by making a new one], users will be able to see all of the "open" defects for the vehicle/trailer and mark them as RESOLVED and SIGN, once fixed.
The next driver to use that vehicle will see the resolved issue when they conduct their pre-trip DVIR. They verify that the vehicle is safe to drive, sign and save.
Defects can also be resolved independent of a DVIR being safe/unsafe/resolved.
- Update to the DVIR allow your mechanics to better track repairs alongside vehicle status.
Please note that DVIR is the US name for Walkaround in the UK, see more here
