If your heavy-duty commercial vehicle weighs more than 10,000 pounds, the US Department of Transportation requires you to obtain a DOT inspection certificate on an annual basis. Our technicians at Integrity Fleet Services are fully qualified to perform both State and Federal DOT compliant inspections at our own facility, which means you no longer have to wait outside DOT inspection sites for hours on end. Besides ensuring your truck is safe and in peak operating shape, our DOT compliant inspection service will keep you fully compliant with the Department of Transportations rules and regulations. Safety and customer satisfaction are our top priorities.
What Does Our DOT Compliant Inspection Cover?
The DOT has a huge list of components that need to be checked over. Each part must be fully operational and in good working order.
Your heavy-duty truck is full of safety equipment. Everything from seatbelts to windshield wipers will be inspected. Every component must be in good working order and must be road legal. Certain aftermarket accessories may make you fail the inspection for the DOT’s rules and regulations can be somewhat strict. Fortunately, aftermarket parts are usually easy to replace.
Tires and Brakes
Tires and brakes are arguably the most important part of your heavy-duty vehicle. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how much you can haul, but rather, it matters how much weight you can bring to a stop. Your brakes will need to be in pristine operating condition, and your tires need to have plenty of tread left on them. Worried you might fail this part of the inspection? Contact us today and we’ll go over your options.
Engine, Transmission, and Drivetrain
Your engine, transmission, and drivetrain are all essential heavy-duty systems. Without them, you’d have no way to move cargo, and therefore, many any money whatsoever. The DOT expects that all three of these systems be in good working order and properly maintained. Expect to have your maintenance records inspected.
