To avoid all DOT penalties and fines, it is crucial to remain DOT compliant. We know your DOT Compliance is complex and it can be difficult to know what all the regulations are, let alone how to comply with them. Whether you are new to the industry and facing your mandatory DOT New Entrant Safety Audit or an established fleet facing a DOT Compliance Review, we can help you get ready.
Have you had a New-Entrant Audit or Compliance Review and the Department of Transportation is requiring you to prepare a Corrective Action Plan? Have you been given a conditional safety rating and need to do a Safety Upgrade Request? We can help you with those too, since we specialize in making DOT Compliance easy.
Need a US DOT Corrective Action Plan?
If you received deficiencies, failed a DOT Audit or a DOT Compliance Review, you have
probably received a notice of violation or a DOT warning letter. If you are issued a notice of violation, the DOT will require you provide them with a corrective action plan. The FMCSA has a corrective action plan template that must be followed exactly. If your action plan doesn’t meet all the requirements it will be rejected. A rejected plan often delays the process further and results in a company being placed Out-Of-Service.
Don’t risk delaying the process by having a plan rejected. This rejection comes in the form of a letter titled Carrier’s Unacceptable Expedited Action Response of Corrective Action under 49 CFR 385.308. Ignoring communications from the US DOT or not responding properly will result in a notice of revocation and eventually the revocation of authority. Don’t let this happen to you; instead, let Progressive help you create a plan that the FMCSA will accept.
Take Action Now!
When the DOT sends you their letter that informs you that you are required to submit a corrective action plan, they include a very specific deadline outlining when everything needs to be submitted. If this deadline is missed, it will cause significant problems and headaches. Don’t wait! Give us a call and we can explain the process in detail and help you get started so there is no interruption in your operation.
What does the DOT require?
The DOT requires that you be specific in the responses to your deficiencies. Each plan must state why the violation occurred, what corrective actions you will take to correct the deficiency, and what corrective actions you will continue to take to prevent the deficiency from occurring again.
