Vehicle Inspection and Maintenance for CMV Drivers


Even a safe driver cannot avoid accidents caused by mechanical failure; the best defense against this type of accident is prevention through performing the appropriate inspections. This course, developed in conjunction with the experts from the Transportation Safety Institute (TSI) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), focuses on the role of the CMV driver in keeping his or her CMV in safe working order by inspecting the vehicle at the start and end of every day. By properly inspecting the vehicle you drive, you will help keep other drivers and yourself safe on the highway. In this course, you will learn about the types of inspections that drivers need to complete, including what to do if defects or problems are uncovered during an inspection. In addition, you will see detailed requirements for some of the equipment covered in the driver vehicle inspections.
