Understanding the DOT Inspection Process
We want our services to be as beneficial as possible for our clients, which is why we will always take the time to explain things in detail. If you have any questions about the state of your vehicle or the tests it could be subjected to, we promise always to provide you with accurate information.
We know that all of the regulations in the trucking industry can feel a bit complicated, but we work had to simplify things for our clients and help them feel secure behind the wheel.
What to Do After Your DOT Truck Inspection
Our goal is to help keep truck drivers on the road without any issues. After we have completed your inspection, we will provide you with a complete overview of our findings. Ideally, there will be no violations to be found, but if there are minor infractions noted, you will have 15 days after the inspection to address them. In the event that there are serious violations found, your vehicle will need to be placed out of service until they are corrected.
