The annual CVSA Roadcheck sends a surge of safety awareness throughout the carrier industry. For those prepared carriers, the Roadcheck presents a great opportunity to self-evaluate.

For carriers caught unprepared, as many as 19% end up sidelined.

To keep your rig safe and en route, here are the 2024 CVSA International Roadcheck details.


Details of CVSA Roadcheck 2024

The 2024 CVSA International Roadcheck will be held May 14 – 16. 37-step inspections, as per the North American Standard Level I Inspection requirements, will be conducted at weigh stations and mobile patrols.

For 2024, the Roadcheck will focus on tractor protection systems and alcohol and controlled substance possession.

If out-service violations are discovered during the inspection, a carrier can only operate the inspected vehicle once the violations are resolved.

The Standard Level I Inspection is a holistic evaluation that inspects every corner of your rig. The inspection includes an assessment of:

  • Brake systems
  • Tires
  • Cargo securement
  • Coupling devices
  • Driveline components
  • Fuel and exhaust systems
  • Steering mechanisms
  • Suspension
  • …and more.

Here’s what you can do to be prepared.


Preparation for CVSA Roadcheck 2024

Tractor Protection Systems

Carriers should be especially prepared to have their tractor protection system in tip-top shape with Roadcheck emphasis.

The CVSA has confirmed that the testing process will require carriers to release all brakes, remove gladhands, and confirm that air leakage will stop at 20 psi.

Carriers should thoroughly inspect their tractor protection valve, trailer supply value, and anti-bleed back valve in anticipation of the Roadcheck.

    Cargo Securement

    Be sure to review regulations relevant to your cargo type before the Roadcheck.

    If the inspector observes improper cargo securement, the resulting out-of-service violation will leave you sidelined.
