Vehicle inspection and repairsGiven the size, weight, length, and the sheer number of miles driven by commercial vehicles, it is imperative that these vehicles be kept in good working order to ensure safe operation. State and Federal laws and regulations have strict requirements for inspection, repair, and maintenance of commercial vehicles. For instance, all drivers of commercial motor vehicles must inspect their vehicle at the beginning and end of each day and report any defects. These inspections include checking to ensure all parts and accessories are in safe and proper operating condition, that all emergency equipment is functional, and that all lights are in working order. Any defects must be fixed and documented. Companies are required to keep certain records regarding these inspections, any repairs, and routine maintenance. These records are required to be kept for a certain period of time after the vehicle leaves the company’s control.

The full state and federal rules regarding vehicle inspection, repairs, and Maintenance can be found below:
