If your fleet has Trailer Selection enabled, you will be able to select a trailer or trailers for your day when you select a vehicle. You will also be able to complete DVIRs for these trailers independently of the DVIR for your vehicle.
Selecting a Vehicle in the Driver App
There are two ways to select your vehicle in the Driver App.
When you first log-in with your Fleet ID, Username, and Password, you will be prompted to select a vehicle. From this screen, you can select the vehicle that you will be driving and hit Confirm.
You can also select your vehicle or change your vehicle by going to the Home Screen and select Vehicle. In the Vehicle section, you will view the vehicle selection screen.
Selecting a Trailer in the Driver App
If your fleet has Trailer Selection enabled, you will be prompted to select a trailer after you select a vehicle when you log in to the Driver App. Once you select your trailer and go to the Home Screen, you will be able to view the vehicle and trailer selection at the top of the screen.
You can also select or change your trailer by going to the Home Screen and select Trailer. In the Trailer section, you will view the vehicle and trailer selection screen. On that page, select the Trailer tab on the right to see a list of available trailers.
You can also use the search bar to look for a specific trailer in your fleet. If your fleet has enabled drivers to create new trailers in the Samsara Driver App, you can search for a trailer and if it does not appear, you can then add that trailer and select it for the day. Simply type in the name of the trailer and click Add to trailer list and select Ok.

- Click Create DVIR at the bottom of the screen.
- Select which trailer you would like to complete a DVIR for and enter any defects and/or take photos.
- Certify and Submit the DVIR.
