Commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) and their drivers may be selected for inspection at any time while out on the road. These “roadside inspections” are conducted by specially trained enforcement personnel, following specific guidelines.
Inspectors work hard to ensure highways are safe for everyone. On average, 100 inspections will result in more than 20 vehicles being ordered off the road due to critical safety violations.
Professional drivers need to get in the habit of preparing their paperwork and doing pre-trip, en route, and post-trip inspections with the same attention an officer will give if a driver is selected for an inspection.
This training is designed to help inexperienced CDL Class A drivers prepare for and know how to participate in a roadside inspection.
