Periodic Commercial Motor Vehicle Inspections (PMVI)

The PMVI criteria are part B of Standard 11 of the National Safety Code (NSC)

There are many misconceptions about this standard. It is sometimes difficult to establish the true requirements involved in an adequate preventive vehicle inspection.

Compliance is mandatory and enforcement agencies are getting more proactive to inspect  commercial vehicles at roadside and inspection stations across the province. Compliance is also in the interest of every motor carrier as it helps prevents downtime, expensive road side assistance, CVOR demerit point and overall cost of operation.

Our consultants have the knowledge and experience to train maintenance technicians to perform thorough inspections efficiently so that quality assurance of the status of your vehicles can be conducted in a timely manner. We also help management to establish the Standard Operational Practices (SOP) necessary to specific trucking applications.

We can recommend  several types of readily prepared inspection forms accompanied with user guides that simplify the inspection process and ensure exhaustive coverage of all necessary items. This documentation is easy to use, easy to refer to as inspection records and provides all necessary information to execute proper diagnosis of the defects found during the inspection procedures. Brake inspection records also prevent opening wheel ends prematurely when properly used and preserved with maintenance records.

We help maintenance personnel achieve outstanding results in preventive maintenance and reduce operational cost.



With the help of Techni-Com Inc. and the Ontario Trucking Association (OTA), we proudly promote a new certification program that allows all maintenance personnel to acquire the necessary knowledge enabling them to perform PMVI’s in a time-saving fashion with exceptional results.  This technical training course allows everyone to take an online test leading to an approved certificate, recognized by the OTA.
