DOT Inspections

DOT Inspections Are an Annual Requirement

The Department of Transportation requires commercial trucks to undergo an annual DOT inspection. Skipping a DOT inspection puts you and your fleet at risk for being shut down. An unsatisfactory inspection can lead to higher insurance premiums and possibly fines.

We can ensure that you pass your annual inspection and get back on the road as quickly as possible.

Contact Ramirez Truck and Trailer Repair of Batavia, Illinois to schedule your DOT inspection.
