Entry-Level Driver Training: Roadside Inspections
Roadside inspections are conducted by specially trained enforcement personnel, following specific inspection criteria and guidelines. They're working hard to ensure highways are safe for everyone. On average, one hundred inspections will reveal more than twenty out-of-service (OOS) violations. Lights, tires, and brakes are the usual culprits, and even though some defects do pop up on the road, inspectors can often tell the difference between recent wear and practiced neglect. Learners should get in the habit of preparing their paperwork and conducting their pre-trip, en route, and post-trip inspections with the same attention an officer will if they are selected for an inspection.
This course is designed to familiarize the learner with types of inspections, how to prepare for an inspection, the inspection process, and potential outcomes of a roadside inspection.
