With DVIR, drivers complete inspection reports alongside Hours of Service logs. Fleet Managers can review/edit past reports and manage the driver/mechanic signature workflow.
To get started, drivers should open the Samsara Driver App and click the green DVIR button.
On the DVIR view, click Add Report.
Fill out the form, including vehicle, inspection type, odometer, vehicle defects, trailer defects.
Mark if the vehicle safe to drive, sign and save.
Sign and submit the report.
The report will appear under the Maintenance tab in the Samsara Dashboard.
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 independently of a DVIR being safe/unsafe/resolved.
- Updates the DVIR allow your mechanics to better track repairs alongside vehicle status.
