Vehicle Inspection Sheets
Keep compliant by doing vehicle check every day with the help of our handy Vehicle Inspection Sheet.
A vehicle inspection sheet is a handy document in the style of a checklist that is designed to help road users carry out necessary checks on their car or truck. For HGV drivers, conducting a daily vehicle inspection is part and parcel of the job. Truck drivers must comply with UK law and ensure their vehicle is roadworthy by undertaking thorough vehicle checks before driving off.
Given that there are a number of vehicle parts that need to be looked at — both interior and exterior — it can be easy to overlook certain components, particularly if the driver is short of time. Vehicle inspection sheets itemise each of the parts to be checked, so drivers can rest assured that they have covered all bases during their inspection. In addition, they can use the sheet to make any additional observations and record any defects that they may find. It’s important that drivers must keep a record of their vehicle inspection sheets, as they may be asked to present these if they are stopped at the roadside by the DVSA or police.
It’s not only HGV drivers who can benefit from using a vehicle inspection sheet. Car drivers are advised to carry out regular checks on their vehicle, especially if they are planning on going on a long journey. A vehicle inspection familiarises you with all of the most important parts of your car and helps to make vehicle checks part of your pre-departure routine.

At FleetGO, we’ve created our very own vehicle inspection sheet tailored to truck and car drivers across the UK. Featuring a user-friendly layout, the daily vehicle checklist is completely free of charge and available both as a printable document or digitally within our new FleetGO vehicle inspection app. It’s split up into logical sections and features a series of predefined fields, as well as more precise details on what to look out for when inspecting each vehicle part.
Here are some of the vital vehicle parts that you’ll find mentioned on our walkaround checklist:
