The operator of a heavy vehicle is responsible for ensuring that each vehicle is roadworthy. A daily check is a quick visual inspection that can be undertaken on a heavy vehicle prior to leaving the yard, depot or rest area.

The NHVR have released this guide to some of the items that might form part of your list of daily checks. (The full list of components and their inspection criteria is contained in the NHVR’s National Heavy Vehicle Inspection Manual – also available at our Downloads Page or at www.nhvr.gov.au/nhvim).

This handy checklist can be downloaded as a pdf from our downloads page, or from the NHVR website at https://www.nhvr.gov.au/files/201611-0434-creating-heavy-vehicle-daily-checks.pdf

[Note: This list is a visual check and serves as a guide only. It may be used as a basis for operator checks and should be adapted for each operator’s individual circumstance. It does not replace a full safety inspection.
