Understanding DOT Inspections for Heavy-Duty Trucks, Trailers, and Fleets

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) oversees the enforcement of DOT regulations for heavy-duty trucks, trailers, and fleets. These rules cover various aspects, including vehicle size, weight, and maintenance. Our experienced team at JB Trailer Service is well-versed in these regulations and will ensure your fleet is fully compliant.

Types of DOT Inspections

There are six levels of DOT inspections, each with different focuses and objectives:

  • Level I: North American Standard Inspection - A thorough vehicle, driver, and cargo inspection.
  • Level II: Walk-Around Driver/Vehicle Inspection - A visual inspection of the vehicle and driver documentation.
  • Level III: Driver/Credential/Administrative Inspection - A review of driver documentation and credentials.
  • Level IV: Special Inspection - A one-time inspection focusing on a specific item or component.
  • Level V: Vehicle-Only Inspection - Similar to a Level I inspection, but without the driver present.
  • Level VI: Enhanced NAS Inspection for Radioactive Shipments - An inspection specifically for trucks transporting radioactive materials.

At JB Trailer Service, we are equipped to handle Levels I, II, and V inspections, ensuring that your heavy-duty trucks and trailers meet all necessary standards.
