What is the Importance of a DOT Inspection?

While a DOT inspection is a legal requirement, they can also help identify any mechanical issues with your truck. Identifying these issues before a breakdown can save you a lot of time and money and avoid further unforeseen circumstances. By having a federal DOT inspection, it ensures the truck works appropriately and avoids mechanical failures. DOT inspections by Interstate Emergency Services can make your routes safer and worry-free.

Interstate Emergency Services D.O.T. Inspection Checklist

During your D.O.T. inspection, an Interstate Emergency Services crew member will examine a variety of parts on your truck. Below is a list of components that we ensure are in safe working order in accordance with the law:

• Brakes
• Cargo Fastening
• Coupling Devices
• Exhaust System
• Fuel System
• Headlights
• Steering Wheel
• Suspension
• Tires
• Turn Signals
• Windshield Wipers

We recommend keeping this full inspection report or returning it to the company that owns your truck. It is also best to keep a copy in your semi-truck as law enforcement officials may request it during a traffic stop. It is important to know that several states require commercial trucks to pass state inspections, separate from a national D.O.T. inspection. You must follow state guidelines if your semi-truck is registered in a state with such requirements.
