DOT Inspection- 10 Things DOT Officers Look For

Class 8 trucks that have a weight rating of more than 10.001 pounds are required to undergo inspection every year. These inspections are regulated and conducted by the Department of Transportation-DOT.

The aim of the DOT inspection is to make sure that the truck, all truck parts of the commercial motor vehicle are in the best working condition. The DOT requires inspection of the truck driver as well.

In general there are six levels of the DOT inspection.
