The US Department of Transportation (DOT) requires bobtail drivers to inspect their vehicles before operating them each day. Daily “walk around” inspections of your bobtail after loading at the bulk plant minimizes the risk for system or documentation issues when arriving at the delivery site.

In addition, vehicles must undergo monthly, annual, and five-year inspections, each of which has its own inspection criteria.
