Keeping Trip Inspection Reports

  • Get trip inspection reports from your drivers within 20 days.
  • File these with your own records within 30 days.
  • Keep the trip inspection reports on file for 3 months.

Note: Drivers or a designated person must let you know about any defect as soon as they discover it—tell your drivers or designates they should let you know as soon as possible—and not to wait until they submit the trip inspection reports.
