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.
This course is designed to help non-CDL CMV drivers prepare for and know how to participate in a roadside inspection.
