What does the DOT inspection cover?
As some of you may have guessed, safety equipment is at the forefront of every DOT inspection. Not only do we inspect the equipment that keeps your operators safe, but we inspect components that keep others on the road safe as well. For example, we will check airbags, seatbelts, mirrors, signals, braking systems, lights, and other similar mechanisms. Don’t worry; if any of these components don’t pass the inspection, we’ll fix them for you! Check out our various service pages to see which repair options are available.
Emissions Control Systems
Emissions control systems are a big part of the DOT inspection. If your various systems aren’t functioning properly, you’ll likely fail the inspection. Emissions control systems include your EGR system, your DPF, and your catalytic converter. When these systems are damaged, your heavy-duty truck will start to emit hefty amounts of carbon and nitrogen oxides into our atmosphere. This is terrible for our environment and should be avoided at all costs.
