Vehicle inspections can be a paperwork nightmare. Many fleets require drivers to complete a pre-trip and post-trip inspection every day — that quickly adds up to a mountain of work.

Motive helps fleets overcome the paperwork burden and streamline vehicle inspection reports. Drivers can use the Motive Electronic Logbook App for Android or iPhone/iPad to create electronic DVIRs. They simply enter their vehicle/trailer details, select defects from a list, and sign. It’s that easy.

The latest update to Motive makes the electronic DVIR feature even better for fleet managers.

Motive now alerts you in real time if your driver reports any defects so that you can get the issue resolved promptly.

You can search for DVIRs by driver or vehicle. You can also use the filters to view only those DVIRs with defects.

If a DVIR has defects, you can mark the defects “corrected” or “need not be corrected” and add a mechanic signature if necessary — all from the Motive Dashboard.

And if you need a paper copy for any reason, you can instantly download and print your drivers’ DVIRs.As always, we would love to hear what you think about the new and improved electronic DVIR feature. If you have any questions or comments, email us at
