CMV Inspections

Test Yourself quiz answers:

  1. a: True. The federal inspection regulations found in Part 396 (as well as the criteria used to perform an annual inspection found in Appendix A) apply to all CMVs and the employers and employees operating them.
  2. b: False. These types of organizations are exempt from the recordkeeping and post-trip inspection reporting requirements of the federal inspection regulations.
  3. b: False. The driver of the CMV must make en-route cargo inspections within 50 miles of beginning a trip, not 25 miles (although 25 miles may be better from a practical perspective).
  4. a: True. The next driver must review the DVIR and sign it, acknowledging that the defect was corrected (or didn’t need correcting) before driving.
  5. e: All of the above. Parking brakes, tires, windshield wiper(s), rear-vision mirrors, coupling devices, wheels and rims, and emergency equipment must also be evaluated.
