The DVSA has published an updated version of its Guide to Maintaining Roadworthiness. The new 2018 guide replaces one that was published in 2014 and reinforces the importance of operating a robust system for reporting and managing vehicle defects.
"There must be a system of reporting and recording defects that may affect the roadworthiness of the vehicle. This must include how they were rectified before the vehicle is used."
"Daily defect checks are vital, and the results of such checks must be recorded as part of the maintenance system."
If you want to maintain a robust defect recording system with a fully traceable route from defect report to repair, then using an electronic based system is the solution for you.
Using VehoCheck to conduct the vehicle walk around check, your driver records any identified defects using the VehoCheck mobile app. The check is then immediately uploaded to your transport office and if a defect is recorded an alert is raised and automatically notified to the workshop.
