DOT Commercial Motor Vehicle Inspections
Online Course

This online interactive course on DOT Commercial Motor Vehicle Inspections discusses Federal inspection and maintenance requirements, how they apply to drivers, and how drivers can help to prevent accidents and injuries by complying with them. An estimated 15.5 million trucks operate on the roads in the United States. To help keep the roads safe for everyone who uses them, the Department of Transportation requires motor carriers to implement a program of regular inspection and maintenance for the trucks that they operate… whether they have a large fleet, or just a single truck.

Commercial drivers play an important part in these programs, and the inspections they perform help to ensure that any problems with a vehicle are identified and repaired before they hit the road. Areas covered in the course include an overview of FMCSA Regulations, pre-trip inspections, en route and roadside inspections, post-trip inspections and more.

Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood… and retained.
