All vehicles classified as commercial motor vehicles, or CMVs, are required to undergo several types of inspections by the Department of Transportation, or DOT, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, or FMCSA. Inspections ensure the safety of drivers, vehicles, cargo and the public. Violations found during DOT inspections can result in fines, vehicles being placed out of service until issues are corrected, or driver’s license revocations. This course will help learners identify types of commercial motor vehicle inspections and recommended practices for preparing for inspections. This course is intended for all drivers of CMVs.
