Davir Trucking and the DVIR
The Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) is a document truck drivers must fill out as part of their daily work. This report alerts them to any defects or issues that could compromise the safety of a truck, so it’s essential for truckers to do this regularly in order to guarantee their vehicles remain in top condition.
Trucking can be an exhilarating and demanding career that involves long hours of travel. There are numerous chances to explore the country and meet new people along the way.
In the trucking industry, you have two choices: company driver or independent operator. Which route you take will determine what types of loads you haul and your pay rate as well as how much time spent driving en route.
