Pupil Transportation Inspection Process

Inspection Process for Pupil Transportation Vehicles

Throughout each school year, all pupil transportation vehicles must be inspected through two processes:

1) Pre-Trip Vehicle Inspection

2) Mechanic’s Vehicle Inspection

Pre-Trip Vehicle Inspection

Each vehicle is required to go through a pre-trip inspection before driven for purposes to transport students.  This inspection is conducted whenever the vehicle has been idle for an hour or more.  The driver completes a Pre-Trip Vehicle Inspection Checklist and a weekly report of this information is submitted to the school’s transportation manager.  A copy of the completed inspection checklists must be kept on file at the school.

80-Day Mechanic’s Vehicle Inspection

All pupil transportation vehicles must be inspected by a school-appointed mechanic before school opens in the fall AND every 80 days thereafter while school is in session.

The school-appointed mechanic completes a Mechanic’s Vehicle Inspection Report after the inspection of each pupil transportation vehicle and submits to the school  If the school contracts for pupil transportation, copies of this form must be kept on file at the school AND with the independent contractor.
