Pass Your DOT Compliance Review

If you’ve successfully passed a New Entrant Safety Audit, that doesn’t mean your company is in the clear yet. If the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) determines that something is wrong or you aren’t following safety protocol, you may be asked to participate in a DOT compliance review.

What Is a DOT Compliance Review?

A DOT compliance review is similar to a safety audit. It’s the FMCSA’s way of making sure that you are following all safety protocols outlined by the FMCSA. As part of the compliance review, a Federal or State Safety Investigator will complete an on-site examination of your operations. You may be contacted by the FMCSA to do a DOT compliance review if your company has had:

  • Poor CSA BASIC scores
  • A request to change a safety rating
  • A major accident
  • A complaint investigation
  • Roadside inspections that resulted in “out-of-service” violations
  • A failed new entrant safety audit

How to Be Compliant

The best way to prepare for a DOT compliance review is to prepare as if you’re planning on a new entrant safety audit. You’ll need to prove to the FMCSA that your company is following all safety regulations set in place. If you fail your review, your company may be put out-of-service.

Working with Progressive for over the last 10 years has been great for our business. We are able to call and get a live person who is an expert in the area where we need assistance.

- Kathy – Las Vegas, NV

We want to say thank you for all the help you have given us over the last 8 years. You have helped us with our licensing, registration and permitting, which are complicated tasks we don’t have the time to dedicate to. Taking those tasks off our plate has allowed us to focus on growth, which is one of the reasons we have been able to grow from 1 truck to over 50 in less than 8 years.

- Corey W. – North Salt Lake, UT

We had an issue with our US DOT number that we tried to fix ourselves. After weeks of frustration and getting nowhere, we made one call to Progressive Reporting and the problem was solved within 2 hours. Now we have Progressive Reporting’s contact info in all of our trucks.
