Record Keeping

Now you’ll head back to the office, this time to look at the vehicle records in more detail.

Tip: Set a time period for the vehicle maintenance records you collect. You could decide to set a 12–month period for all invoices, CVSA, CVIP and other related records for one vehicle. Keep them in one file folder. At the end of the 12 months, open a new folder for next year's records. You must keep at least three years of records. But keeping 12 month folders keeps your files organized—whether you keep digital records, or paper.
