There are several steps that delivery drivers can take to prepare for the CVSA Annual Road Check and ensure that their commercial delivery vehicles are in compliance with federal safety regulations:

  1. Regular vehicle maintenance: Keeping your box truck well-maintained is one of the most important things that delivery drivers can do to prepare for the Road Check. This includes checking brakes, lights, tires, and other key systems to ensure they are in good working order.
  2. Review federal regulations: Delivery drivers should familiarize themselves with the federal regulations that govern commercial vehicle safety, such as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs), so they know what to expect during the Road Check.
  3. Secure cargo properly: Delivery drivers should make sure that their cargo van is loaded and secured properly, in accordance with federal regulations, to avoid any issues during the Road Check.
  4. Keep records up to date: Delivery drivers should keep their log books, vehicle inspection reports, and other required documentation up to date and easily accessible.
  5. Check the vehicle before hitting the road: Delivery drivers should conduct a pre-trip inspection of their vehicles before hitting the road, paying close attention to brakes, lights, tires, and other systems to ensure they are in good working order.

By following these steps, delivery drivers can help ensure that their delivery vehicles are in compliance with federal safety regulations and minimize the chances of being taken out of service during the CVSA Annual Road Check.
