The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) International Roadcheck has been rescheduled for September 9-11. CVSA officials postponed the event, originally scheduled in March, due to COVID-19.

This year the focus of the International Roadcheck will be on drivers and driver requirements. Here’s what your drivers can expect from inspection:

  • Collect and verify drivers’ documents
  • Identify motor carrier
  • Examine driver’s license
  • Check record of duty status and review periodic inspection reports
  • (if applicable) check Medical Examiner’s Certificate, Skill Performance Evaluation certificate and driver’s daily vehicle inspection report
  • Check driver’s for seat belt usage, illness, fatigue and apparent alcohol or drug possession or impairment

In addition to driver examinations, vehicles will be checked according to the North American Standard Level 1 Inspection. This 37-step process includes two major inspection areas, as well as an examination of the driver operating requirements and vehicle mechanical fitness.

Vehicle portion of inspection includes checking critical vehicle inspection items:

  • Brake systems
  • Cargo securement
  • Coupling devices, driveline/drive-shaft components
  • Driver’s seat (missing)
  • Exhaust systems
  • Frames
  • Fuel systems
  • Lighting devices
  • Steering mechanisms
  • Suspensions
  • Tires
  • Van and open-top trailer bodies
  • Wheels
  • Rims and hubs
  • Windshield wipers
