(Special Instructions for Motor Vehicle Drivers).
Conditions. You will have this subcourse book and work without supervision.
Standard. You must score at least 75 on the end-of-subcourse examination that covers this lesson

FILLING OUT DD FORM 626
The bottom part of DD Form 626, items 23 through 30, is for recording deficiencies found during the
inspection of vehicles loaded with ammunition. Inspections are conducted at the vehicle's origin and at
its destination. Instructions for completing the form are printed on the back of the form, except for items
24, 26, 27, and 28, which are self-explanatory. Any deficiencies found during an inspection should be
reported to the chief of surveillance. Refer to figure 3-1.
Items 23 through 30 of the form must be checked and found satisfactory (print "SAT" in the Origin
column) before a loaded vehicle can be released at its origin.
