Daily inspection test
Exterior inspection

The exterior inspection of the vehicle must be performed with the parking brake engaged (for all Class A vehicles and vehicles equipped with air brakes, unless when necessary to release the parking brake during the course of the inspection) and the wheels chocked.

You will be asked to find and inspect four randomly generated items from the list below and be required to:

    • Demonstrate and describe how you would inspect the particular item.
    • Explain what the defect(s) would be for the particular item.
    • Describe what action you would take upon identifying a minor and/or major defect.

For all full Class A road tests and any road test where the vehicle is equipped with air brakes, you must be prepared to inspect any of the air brake components of the vehicle listed below, as well as any of the other items. The list also provides inspection methods for each item.
