Frequently Asked Questions

Vehicle walkaround checks are the checks your driver should carry out on their vehicle before setting off on any run, to ensure that the vehicle is safe and roadworthy. This is a legal requirement for HGV and PSV drivers, and best practice for van and LGV drivers. Daily vehicle walkaround checks should also incorporate a system of reporting and recording defects, including how they were rectified.

Yes! You can replace paper checklists with Stream. Drivers can complete their daily vehicle checks using the Stream mobile app on Android and iOS devices, and you can create and manage your vehicle walkaround checks in Stream using any web browser.

Details of every check completed are stored against the corresponding vehicles, giving you the ability to build up a comprehensive vehicle check history and audit trail for your entire fleet, for 18 months. You can use our Extended Data Retention add-on to increase the amount of time this data is held.

Yes! We have templates in our mobile app that are populated with the standard walkaround checklists recommended by the DVSA & RSA for different vehicle types, including HGVs, PSVs and vans. You can use these templates out of the box, or add custom checks relevant to your specific vehicles, business model, and industry.

Checks aren’t limited to vehicles. Create custom checks and check types (checklists) to check any equipment, plant machinery or PPE that your business uses. You can even create a custom check to use as an Accident Report to record the details of any incidents that occur out on the road.

You can export your vehicle walkaround checks reports and use them to measure performance and analyse your check data against your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and other business targets. You can access even more detailed data and reports about your vehicle checks using our Analytics add-on.

You can also export your vehicle walkaround checks reports as part of a compliance exercise, or an audit trail of walkaround checks that have been completed.
