What Does a DOT Inspection Cover?
Drivetrain and Powertrain
Every component within your drivetrain and powertrain must be fully operational. This includes your engine, your coolant system, your transmission, your transfer case, your driveshafts, differentials, and axles. If any of these components are damaged or are not fully operational, you will fail the inspection.
Any system that performs a function critical to the safety of you and everyone else on the road is generally considered a safety system. This includes systems like your brakes, lighting systems, steering, exhaust, and other various systems. If any of these components are not working properly, you will fail the inspection.
Anything related to how your cargo is secured will be covered during the inspection as well. This includes your straps, tiedown points, doors, trailer bed, and other similar components. Without proper cargo specs, others are put in danger.
