What is a DOT Inspection?

The Department of Transportation (DOT) inspection is a federally mandated procedure to guarantee that all parts and accessories related to safety are in top-notch condition, functioning correctly, and compliant with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR). This comprehensive check involves several key components of your vehicle, critical to its safe operation.

Inspecting the Fundamentals: Brakes, Steering, and Lighting

Brakes are the most vital safety feature of any vehicle. During the DOT inspection, we meticulously examine the brake system, including pads, drums, and rotors, alongside necessary adjustments and the air brake system operation. Steering mechanisms also undergo a rigorous review, ensuring no excessive play or malfunction that could lead to control issues.

Lighting is another crucial safety element. Our technicians scrutinize all lights, reflectors, and electrical systems to confirm their proper functionality. This includes headlights, tail lights, turn signals, and brake lights, as well as the reflective devices that are essential for visibility.

90-Day BIT Inspection

California's Biennial Inspection of Terminals (BIT) program requires certain motor carriers to undergo regular inspections every 90 +days. L & T Truck Repair is proficient in these inspections, which are designed to detect any issues that could affect the safety and operational capacity of your fleet.

Tires, Wheels, and Coupling Devices

Tires are checked for tread depth, wear patterns, and inflation, which can significantly impact handling and safety. Wheels and rims are examined for cracks or defects that could lead to failure. Coupling devices, including fifth wheels and pintle hooks, are inspected for wear and secure mounting, ensuring the safe towing of trailers and cargo.
